SJSU Dietetic Internship

About the SJSU Dietetic Internship

The SJSU DI is only available to students from the SJSU Department of Nutrition, Food Science, and Packaging who already have a graduate degree or are getting a graduate degree at the time of application, and applicants must have received/will receive at least one of the following degrees from the Department: BS in Nutritional Science, Concentration in Dietetics and/or MS in Nutritional Science.

The DI at San José State University is a minimum 1000 hours supervised-practice full-time program with placement sites located in San Jose and surrounding areas.
