Students entering UMass have the following honors options:
- Two Nutrition Honors Courses: The Nutrition Department does not offer honors courses. Students typically take graduate-level courses or complete an honors independent study activity along with a non-honors required course using an Honors Independent Study Contract (HIS) obtained through Commonwealth College. The course will appear on the transcript as an HIS in Nutrition. All Departmental Honors Nutrition courses, including the honors thesis or project listed below, need to be discussed with nutrition department Honors Program Director, Dr. Alayne Ronnenberg.
- Honors Research Project (NUTRITN 499Y): For more information on this independent research project, go to the Commonwealth Honors College website.
- Honors Thesis or Project (NUTRITION 499T or 499P): Including submission of manuscript to CHC.
