Field Experiences

UMASS Nutrition Association at the Amherst Survival Center

Nutrition students complete field experience in various locations, including UMass, Western Massachusetts, hometowns, and abroad. Students can benefit in many ways from exposure to and experience in the field.  These experiences can be on or off campus as one-time volunteer event or by participating in or organizing a program, through mentorship or shadowing a professional, via participation in a research project or through development or implementation of a community service or outreach project. Some of these can be used for credit and others are purely volunteer. We try to connect students with nutrition professionals looking for help but we encourage all of our students to investigate possible field experiences on their own.
