The Master of Science in Nutritional Sciences is an online (distance education) program that prepares students with advanced training in nutritional sciences, education and research. You can select one of the following concentration areas: Community Nutrition Educator, Gerontological Nutrition, Obesity and Weight Management, Pediatric Nutrition or Sports Dietetics. All students complete either the internship or thesis option.
Students who are registered dietitians or completing an Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND)-accredited Dietetic Internship Program or other ACEND-accredited dietitian training programs are eligible to use this experience for six internship credits, which reduces the number of credits needed to complete the degree. The department also offers training to become a registered dietitian/nutritionist through the ACEND-accredited Future Education Model Graduate Program.
