Online Master of Science in Applied Nutrition
The Canisius College MS in Applied Nutrition is a fully online program designed for Registered Dieticians to advance their degree and specialize in one of two areas – Obesity and Eating Disorders or Fitness and Sports Nutrition.
The program for either track combines academic research with practical training to strengthen your career. You will learn to conduct dietetic research and evaluate nutritional programs while building a firm base of theoretical knowledge. Applied nutrition emphasizes the role of diet in promoting good health, including applying the science of nutrition to the treatment and prevention of disease. A master’s degree in applied nutrition opens the door to many career options, including management or administrative positions in schools and with healthcare, government and community organizations.
Note: This degree does not yield (nor is it a route to obtain) RD (Registered Dietitian) status. It will NOT qualify students to sit for the RD licensing exam upon completion.
