Graduate Certificate in Dietetics: Focus on Older Adults
Courses in Consumer and Family Studies/Dietetics also provide a general education perspective.
The B.A. in Home Economics includes formal concentrations in: Clothing and Textiles, and Interior Design and Housing. Informal subject matter emphases on advisement are available in child development, family relationships, and foods and nutrition/foodservice management.
Students who earn a baccalaureate in Home Economics or Dietetics, with supporting courses in appropriate fields and with a 3.0 grade point average, may qualify for admission to the Master of Arts in Home Economics. Graduate study prepares one for entry into advanced professional assignments in education, business, government, human services, or communications.
The Master of Arts in Home Economics is aimed toward: increasing competencies for teaching home economics courses in colleges and universities; developing competencies needed in professional roles related to business, extension, community services, and health; developing competencies essential for supervising and administering home economics programs; and increasing competencies for teaching home economics at the secondary level. The program also prepares one for further graduate study.
Students are expected to observe the general requirements outlined in this Bulletin and to consult with a graduate adviser. Requests for an adviser should be directed to the department chair.
A 28-31 unit graduate certificate program in Dietetics: Focus on Older Adults provides for the knowledge and practice requirements of The American Dietetic Association to meet eligibility to sit for the examination for Registered Dietitian. The student rotates through various facilities in the community to gain the appropriate practice and experiences required.
According to the Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics projections, there is an annual shortage of graduates who are prepared for professional careers with a B.A. in Home Economics, and an annual shortage of Registered Dietitians. In addition, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports an annual shortage of M.A. graduates to be well over 30%.
BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN DIETETICS
This degree prepares students for entry level careers in food service systems management and/or nutrition education positions in industries or government agencies. Students earning an appropriate grade point average are eligible to compete for continued training in an approved dietetic internship or AP4 (Approved Pre-Professional Practice Program) to gain eligibility to sit for the R.D. exam. In order to ensure completion
of all degree and competency requirements, students must consult on a regular basis with the designated dietetic coordinator. Students who anticipate credits earned at another institution being accepted in lieu of courses required for the degree at San Francisco State University must obtain approval from the designated dietetic coordinator.
Courses for this program are listed in alphabetical sequence (see Dietetics discipline in the "Announcement of Courses" section).
The Bachelor of Science in Dietetics is a 126-unit degree. The program meets the new Standards of Education (Plan V) of The American Dietetics Association. The program provides competencies in the three areas of dietetics and meets the 24 knowledge requirements.
Students enrolled as dietetics majors should consult the dietetic program coordinator for planning and evaluation of courses transferred from other institutions. Students should consult the course descriptions in this Bulletin for prerequisites and corequisites. Courses must be completed with a 2.0 grade point average and no grade below a C– or CR. No more than six units may be completed with the CR/NC grading option in the Foundation Requirements.
A student will receive a verification of completion of Plan V requirements if an overall GPA of 2.7 and a GPA of 3.0 in the Professional Requirements have been achieved.

CFS 750 3 DIET 785 3 DIET 881 Internship 8 Total for semester 14The internship units consist of 25-35 hours per week of supervised experiences under the direction of a dietitian or foodservice manager in a facility or program serving older adults. The internship is based on specific experiences and competencies which the student is expected to complete. Students are placed in a foodservice setting for the first semester and in a nutritional care setting for the second semester. A total of 900+ hours is required in the internship segment, when both Fall and Spring are combined, in order to meet requirements of The American Dietetic Association. Students take DIET 881 for seven units in Fall and DIET 881 for eight units in Spring semester. Additional affiliations in community-based programs for older adults are included throughout the program on a two-three week basis to enable students to have a broad array of experiences in dietetics. The approximate division is two-fifths nutritional care, two-fifths foodservice, and one-fifth community competencies.
The student is expected to be full-time in the certificate program and all students move through the program in a cohort. No part-time enrollment is allowed due to the requirements of the internship portion for continued practice experience. The practice component (DIET 881) is scheduled as four 7-8 hour days per week in a facility or facilities to correspond to the work schedule of the preceptor to whom the student/intern is assigned. Class work is scheduled usually in the late afternoon or evening.
