Through the online and on-campus graduate programs in Nutrition, you’ll have the flexibility to tailor your program to support your individual research and career goals, such as nutritional biochemistry and physiology, nutritional epidemiology, nutrition education, and community nutrition. The doctoral program prepares individuals for teaching and research in academic institutions and for positions of professional leadership in health and health-related agencies where research is an important function. The Master of Science, offered with both thesis and non-thesis options, prepares graduates for doctoral studies in nutrition and for careers in research, clinical nutrition, community nutrition, or nutrition education. The M.P.H. is designed for those who already hold an advanced professional degree (Ph.D., M.D., R.D.) and have previous work experience, and seek additional practice or career advancement in a public health nutrition setting.
