Human Nutrition Graduate Programs

The Human Nutrition graduate program leads to the Master of Science (M.S.) degree in Human Nutrition.

"Nutrition science" is a broad discipline. Sociological, behavioral, policy, public health, medical, agricultural and biologic approaches represent just a few of the nutritionally relevant areas for graduate education in our program.

Human Nutrition is grounded in the science of nutrition. We want all of our students to understand the metabolism and function of nutrients, as well as the scientific basis for the relationships between diet and disease. We also want our students to appreciate the ways in which nutrition science is utilized to improve the health of people and how research is utilized to set public policy.

We aim to be flexible to help each student develop into the type of "nutritionist" that he or she wishes to become.

Human Nutrition graduate program starts during fall term only. The deadline to apply is December 1st of each academic year.
