The Masters of Science in Human Environmental Sciences with an area of study in Human Nutrition is a 30 credit-hour program designed to prepare nutrition professionals to practice dietetics at an advanced level and/or to pursue doctoral study. The program develops research skills, stimulates independent thought and provides up-to-date knowledge in food and nutrition.
The program tracks are designed for the registered dietitian but can be completed by a dietetic intern or student with a bachelor's degree in nutrition or another discipline who has met the listed prerequisites. Students may choose one of three tracks:
Students with a bachelor's degree in another discipline will need to complete several undergraduate nutrition courses prior to applying to the graduate program. Find details here. If you are not currently a registered dietitian or do not hold a bachelor's degree in the field of nutrition, please note that this program does not provide eligibility to sit for the National Registration examination to become a registered dietitian, nor does it provide eligibility to apply to a dietetic internship. Check out our online Bachelor of Science in HES with a major in Food and Nutrition to start your journey toward becoming a registered dietitian. This bachelor's degree program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics.
