Program Description:

Applicants to the program leading to a degree in Nutrition are required to have earned a degree in nutrition, foods, or dietetics from an accredited undergraduate institution. Individuals with other degrees are encouraged to apply with the understanding that they need to have at least 3 credits in chemistry and 6 credits in anatomy and physiology as prerequisite to satisfy the departmental admissions committee. If they wish to meet the academic requirements for an RD, other prerequisites will be necessary which vary depending on what the applicant has taken as an undergraduate. GREs are required for admission into the program. The M.S. in Nutrition is a 36-credit program requiring 9 credits in core nutrition courses, 9 credits in the research sequence, and 18 elective credits. In addition to the required courses, the candidate must successfully complete and defend an original research project. Students, after consultation with the chairperson, will be assigned a member of the Nutrition/Dietetics faculty as a mentor. The mentor and two other committee members will work with the candidate on an individual basis throughout the research project.
