Maximize your opportunities for faculty research collaboration
across disciplines with our master’s degree in
This degree program will prepare you for advanced professional programs, clinical research or careers in industries such as food, hospitality, health facilities, government or private consulting.
Personalize the program with one of two specialty tracks.
For acceptance in the clinical nutrition track, you must be eligible for the registered dietitian (RD) exam. One year of clinical nutrition experience is preferred.
You can complete either track with a comprehensive exam, project or thesis. Your advisor will guide you through this process.
If you are applying for a thesis option, we strongly suggest that you contact a faculty member in your area of interest to arrange an in-person or phone interview.
Students in the BS/MS program generally choose the comprehensive exam option but may elect to complete a thesis or project. Choosing a thesis or project may extend the length of the program beyond five years.
