The Bureau of Labor Statistics expects the employment of  dietitians to increase by 20 percent from 2010 to 2020, faster than the average  growth for all occupations.  This is due  to an increasing emphasis on disease prevention through improving dietary  habits.   Graduates of the University of  the Incarnate Word Nutrition programs have been primarily placed in positions  related to food and nutrition in San Antonio, Texas.  The majority of our graduates either obtain placement in a  dietetic internship or pursue graduate education after receiving their  bachelor’s degree.      

Graduates of the University of the Incarnate  Word Nutrition Program are employed in the following areas:  health care, food service management, food  industry, community nutrition programs and governmental agencies, private  practice, wellness, sales, research, and media communications.
