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.
