Degree Map

The Associate of Arts Direct Transfer Agreement, AA-DTA  with Nutrition Emphasis prepares students for a career in nutrition, by setting them on the path to earning a Bachelor’s degree in nutrition/dietetics or becoming a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN). Nutrition professionals can work in many different capacities, depending on level of education achieved, credentials, and specialization. These can include nutrition counselor, clinical dietitian, health educator, sports nutritionist, employee wellness instructor, food scientist, public health dietitian, or corporate dietitian.
While SVC only offers one nutrition course at this time, there is a recommended slate of additional related courses that will set the student up for successful transfer to a Bachelor’s program in nutrition, including accredited programs that lead to the RDN credential.

The suggested schedule below includes required DTA courses with an emphasis in Nutrition. Student schedule may vary based on entry point, credit load, and prerequisites. Consult with department chair or SVC counselor for scheduling options. 

The two-year suggested schedule below is provided as only a guide for a traditional full-time student whose goal is the Associate of Arts Direct Transfer Agreement, AA-DTA . Frequent course offerings allow for individualized schedules that will ensure all student degree objectives are met.
