Everyday new information is uncovered concerning food and how it affects the body all over the world.  Students who study abroad as a Dietetics major are given the opportunity to gain new perspectives on how different cultures view food, how dietetics is studied on an international scale, and how many recipes are fusions from other countries. Studying Abroad can also be a great time to gain cross-cultural skills by satisfying general education requirements or the elective credits allotted to Dietetics majors/minors.

See the list of recommended study abroad programs below.  Please be aware that for any external or exchange study abroad programs listed, students will need to check with their academic department to see if courses taken while abroad will transfer and fulfill needed requirements.
