Undergraduate Programs in Nutrition

The field of Nutrition encompasses an extremely broad and increasingly expanding variety of topics, including the study of metabolism and metabolomics. The Department of Nutrition is a research-based department within the School of Medicine that offers several undergraduate degree programs, including dual-majors.

Dual Degrees In Nutrition

The MPH/Nutrition dual degree is envisioned with students able to apply for either degree, then later join the other; or apply directly for the joint degree. Both the MPH and MS programs confer degrees through the School of Graduate Studies and as such are subject to Graduate Studies rules and procedures.

PhD Programs in Nutrition

The understanding of metabolic and nutritional diseases requires integrating molecular biology, genomics, proteomics and metabolomics into collaborative efforts to unravel the complex regulation of metabolic pathways.

Graduate Certificates in Nutrition

In addition to the public health nutrition curriculum, students may elect to complete a certificate in Maternal and Child Nutrition or Gerontology. Specialty certificates may require completion of additional coursework. If a certificate program is selected, supervised practice will be geared toward the specific population group.
