CHANGES TO THE DIETETICS OPTION IN THE
BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN NUTRITION IN THE COLLEGE OF NATURAL SCIENCES CHAPTER OF THE
UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2010-2012

NAME OF DEGREE PROGRAM(S): Bachelor of Science in Nutrition

EXPLAIN CHANGE(S) TO DEGREE PROGRAM:
Reflects changes, D 7622-7630, which were approved by the provost on January 25, 2010, and transmitted to the executive vice chancellor for academic affairs.
Option I: Dietetics {NEW Change – see line 12 of Option I}
The supervised practice (field experience) requirement was revised to expand total contact hours from 900 to 1200 hours. Senior spring: NTR 345M, 372C, 372F, 373P – decrease credit hours from 15 to 12; maintain contact hours at 40 hours per week. Senior summer: NTR 374C, 374P – increase credit hour from 3 to 6; schedule one course each summer term for an increase from five to ten weeks (40 hours per week).

Indicate pages in the undergraduate catalog where changes will be made. page 529 (page 50 in CNS excerpt)

GIVE A DETAILED RATIONALE FOR CHANGE(S):
Option I: Dietetics {New Change}
The supervised practice courses for the Coordinated Program in Dietetics are being revised to increase field experience hours by 33% to comply with new accreditation standards for dietetic education programs. NTR 772C is being divided with NTR 345M being the first half of the hospital practice experience and 372C the second half. This separation will help students better understand the expectations of the two portions of the clinical dietetics supervised practice experience. NTR 572F is being changed to a 3 credit course with 40 hours of contact time per week for 4 weeks. This is an accurate representation of the portion of the semester devoted to foodservice management. Although the contact hours for courses taken in the senior spring are being modified, the total contact hours for the semester remain the same.

SCOPE OF THE PROPOSED CHANGE(S):
Does this proposal impact other colleges/schools? If yes, then how? No.

Has the other college(s)/school(s) been informed of the proposed change? If so, please indicate their response. N/A.
