About the Program

Looking to make an impressive impact in the field of nutrition, fast? With our integrated Bachelor of Science/Master of Science in Nutrition program, you can earn two degrees in just five years—saving you time and money while preparing you with the knowledge you need to propel your career.

Housed in one of the oldest nutrition departments in the United States at one of the country’s top medical schools, you’ll have ample opportunities to conduct research with esteemed faculty, study abroad to expand your understanding of nutrition globally and gain clinical experience at some of the nation’s top hospitals. If you are planning to pursue a career in nutritional biochemistry and metabolism, molecular nutrition, dietetics, public health nutrition or another biomedical science—or if you’re hoping to study medicine, dentistry, nursing, physical therapy or become a physician assistant—Case Western Reserve University’s integrated BS/MS in Nutrition is an ideal program for a highly motivated student like you.

What to Expect

Typically, Case Western Reserve undergraduate students apply to the integrated BS/MS program in spring of their junior year and, if accepted, determine up to nine credit hours of graduate-level courses that can count toward both degrees. 

This “double counting” of credit hours means you’ll double the impact of your tuition while gaining an advanced understanding of nutrition that will help you succeed on day one of your career, whether you enter the field after graduation or continue your studies.

Throughout your five years in the BS/MS program, you’ll find that, while we have an intense focus on human nutrition and its scientific application, we also are flexible. We encourage our students to pursue complementary studies in the biomedical, social and behavioral sciences or hone their focus on nutritional biochemistry and metabolism or molecular nutrition.

Plus, our MS in Nutrition is approved as a post-baccalaureate premedical program, which helps you improve your competitiveness to enter medical school or another advanced professional program.

“When I found out about the BS/MS program, I was so excited and grateful for the opportunity to pursue further topics in nutrition. I especially enjoy the flexibility of the program, and my ability to take psychology and dance, in conjunction with my nutrition coursework."
