The PhD in nutrition requires extensive coursework in stable isotopes and metabolomics with a focused metabolic research project. However, there is an opportunity for elective coursework - one specifically tailored both to the research interests and career goals of each student. The doctoral student must complete courses in:
- Metabolic Regulation
- Molecular Nutrition
- Advanced Human Nutrition
- Elective studies
