Become More Competitive in the Field of Human Nutrition

The Masters of Science 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. 

Customize your education through specialized tracks that 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: Clinical Nutrition, Community Nutrition or Generalist.

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 accredited online undergraduate program in Food and Nutrition to start your journey toward becoming a registered dietitian.
