Admissions - Why Choose CSULB?

Our students go places. In Spring 2019, 88% of graduating seniors in our DPD who applied for dietetic internships or ISPPs were accepted. Additionally, many of our students also go on to attend graduate school in public health,  nutrition, food science, and kinesiology. Whether you're interested in pediatrics, gerontology, sustainability, or anything else, there will be something for you here to help you grow. Our program has trained internationally respected registered dietitians who work on pro-sports teams (Lakers, LA Galaxy, Olympics), run companies (i.e. eating disorders clinics, private practices), offer care to sick patients, and make a real difference in our communities. Some even go on for a PhD and become faculty to teach the next generation!
