The Nutrition Division within the Department of Family, Population and Preventive Medicine, School of Medicine, is offering a fully online Master of Science in Nutrition degree program (36 credits) as well as an Advanced Certificate in Nutrition program (15 credits).
The online MS Program in Nutrition provides a comprehensive course of study in advanced nutrition topics to prevent and manage disease, as well as optimize health through food and nutrition strategies. Expert faculty members, currently working in the field, will provide instruction on evidence-based, timely nutrition therapies and facilitate the development of a strong knowledge base and counseling skill set.
The Program is designed to meet the needs of students of varying backgrounds, including practicing physicians, nutritionists, and other health care practitioners with strong practical skills, as well as post-baccalaureate students training to be health care providers with more recent basic science training. Graduates will be prepared to apply their advanced training in clinical settings, as well as industry settings, such as pharmaceutical or supplement development, funcional food development and media outlets.
The application application is ONLINE and accessible via the Admissions tab. Applications are no longer being accepted for Spring 2018. You can still take up to 2 courses as a non-matriculated student. If you are interested in taking a course as a non-matriculated student for Spring 2018, email Sharon Schmidt for an application.
