The Adult Education Department and Dietetics and Nutrition have collaborated to create the Dietetics and Adult Education Accelerated Undergraduate to Graduate 4+1 Pathway, which allows students to focus their adult education course work in ways that complement their content knowledge in dietetics and wellness. This joint program has been established to support Registered Dietitians who are required to earn a master’s degree (by 2025) prior to entering the field. The 4+1 Pathway provides qualified Dietetics and Nutrition undergraduate students a seamless entry into the M.S. in Adult Education.
Through the 4+1 Pathway undergraduates in Dietetics and Nutrition can apply for conditional admission to graduate school and complete 9 hours of graduate coursework in the Master of Science in Adult Education degree during their senior undergraduate year. A maximum of 9 credit hours (divided between the first and second semester of a senior year) may be taken during the senior year. Students must maintain academic eligibility, as outlined by the admission requirements into the pathway, throughout their senior year.
Students in the Dietetics and Nutrition program at Buffalo State who are interested in the 4+1 Pathway may contact their undergraduate academic advisors or Dr. Carol DeNysschen (firstname.lastname@example.org) to learn more about the program.
