Brescia University College at Western University offers two curriculum options in the MScFN program: a project-based (practicum) curriculum option and a thesis-based curriculum option. Both groups will participate in graduate-level university courses and enhance their leadership skills. Students will also expand their research competence through a major research project or completion of a thesis.
Students will complete a full-time, year-long, PDEP accredited dietetic practicum which qualifies graduates to write the Canadian Dietetic Registration Examination to practice as Registered Dietitians (RDs) in Canada. Students participate in advanced course work, and work with a Faculty Supervisor to complete a major research project.


These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.
