What to Expect
You’ll complete 31 semester hours of flexible coursework in 16 months.
If you don’t have an undergraduate degree in nutrition, you’ll gain an introduction through NTRN 401 (Nutrition for Community and Health Care Professionals) before you begin. From there, your coursework will include training in public health theory, program development and evaluation, nutritional epidemiology, human nutrition and life-cycle specific nutritional needs. These courses will prepare you for a career in health and community agencies, government or public policy to promote nutrition and reduce the risk of chronic disease across communities.
