Online Master of Public Health in Nutrition Degree

Tackle the 21st centuries complex health challenges

Our Master of Public Health in Nutrition degree program is the only fully accredited and fully online program of its kind. The program is designed for health and nutrition professionals, including those with doctoral or medical degrees, registered dietitians, nurses, pharmacists, dental hygienists, health and nutrition educators, and those in other related fields.

The goal of the program is to provide nutrition and health practitioners and those with advanced degrees the opportunity to continue their careers, while earning a Master's Degree of Public Health in Nutrition that emphasizes a broad background in public health and advanced training in public health nutrition.

Working as part of interdisciplinary teams, students will develop the following skills:

  • Provide evidenced-based approaches in coursework.
  • Incorporate critical thinking and experiential learning to solve current community-based health problems ranging from obesity and chronic disease to malnutrition, food insecurity, and nutritional deficiencies.
  • Advanced training in public health nutrition and health program management will help nutrition professionals and other health practitioners gain skills to provide services for the growing populations of older adults and diverse groups and to increase the focus of services on prevention and wellness.

Our program is fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) and the Council on Education in Public Health (CEPH).

**This program does not include a dietetic internship and thus does not prepare students to sit for the Registered Dietitian exam.**
