MS in Human Nutrition

The Master's in Human Nutrition program comprises 33 credits and a research-based Master's Thesis. Students have the option to select from three different Thesis tracks: basic nutrition science, clinical nutrition, or public health nutrition. Throughout the program, students will be matched with a mentor who will guide them through their thesis and help them find relevant opportunities. Our courses and thesis research options are designed to improve students' nutrition knowledge and skills, preparing them for careers in academic, research, and clinical settings.

The MS Program is typically completed in one year, including a summer semester. However, part-time program options are available for students who prefer a more flexible schedule. View our curriculum and coursework.

By the end of the program, students will gain comprehensive nutrition science training and enhance their critical thinking, writing, and public speaking skills.

While many of our students pursue medical, dental, or other healthcare-related careers, the program also provides a solid foundation for those planning to pursue a PhD or enter the workforce immediately after graduation. Hear from our alumni who pursued different career paths.
