Which program is right for me - the MPH or MS?

The MPH program is targeted towards those individuals with an advanced degree (such as MS, MD, PhD, etc.) in a health-related field, those who are Registered Dietitians, or those individuals who have 3-5 years of relevant post-bachelor’s experience and have taken two courses in nutrition. Students can either pursue a full time on campus MPH program or an online MPH program on a full time or part time basis. The online MPH program is targeted more towards working professionals who want to pursue higher education without giving up their current professional position.

The MS program is targeted towards individuals who have completed at least a Bachelor’s degree and are interested in pursuing graduate education in the field of nutrition. The MS program provides students with the knowledge base and skills to research nutrition problems and to plan community, clinical, and individual applications of nutrition prevention and treatment at various levels. The MS in Nutrition provides advanced nutrition competencies and skills for application at the clinical, research, and group settings.
