The Master of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics with Supervised Experiential Learning (MSND-SEL) is a combined online-onsite practice program that integrates a Master of Science degree along with the 1,000 hours of alternate and supervised experiential learning (SEL) required to become eligible to take the CDR credentialing exam for dietitian nutritionists (RDN) and meet state licensure eligibility requirements of Puerto Rico. The supervised experiential learning (SEL) hours consist of 280 hours of alternate experiential learning embedded in required courses and 720 hours, equivalent to 8 credits, to be completed in SEL practice sites. The Program follows a Competency Based Education (CBE) that integrates didactic education with supervised experiential learning.

Call for applications for August, 2023 will begin on January 2023.
