Program Open House
We hold an onsite open house every fall semester.
Dates for 2019 are to be determined, but the open house is typically in October.
We aim to provide a substantive open house experience, so we try to combine a presentation by the DI Director with a Q & A with professors, as well as a research symposium to give applicants an idea of the research activities of our faculty.
We encourage students coming from out of town to spend the night in San Marcos to get a feel for the city and to explore the Texas State campus. To that end, we typically hold the presentations and Q & A on Saturday, and offer a research symposium or other opportunity to network with faculty on Friday evening.
Topics covered in the open house:
- Learn how to combine the Dietetic Internship with the Master of Science in Human Nutrition
- Understand how to apply as a pre-select candidate and through DICAS in the Spring match
- Explore our pediatric program concentrations, and learn about our unique rotations
- Speak with the DI Director, faculty members from the MS in Human Nutrition, and current dietetic interns
