The Nutrition Science and Policy program at Tufts University is designed for health professionals, career-changers, and recent graduates who are passionate about nutrition, and who seek a world-class program without having to disrupt their life or career.


About the Program

The program offers an interdisciplinary curriculum of advanced study in nutrition science, global and US food policy, global nutrition programs, and applied research skills.  Students can also choose from a variety of elective courses, tailoring their study to their interests or career objectives.

MNSP professors are experts in their field, world-renowned researchers, and engaged teachers.  They include biochemists, RD’s, an economist, nutrition scientists, a statistician, a behaviorist, international nutrition program scholars, and policy experts.

Students entering the Friedman School of Nutrition come from remarkably diverse backgrounds and leave us to pursue careers in education, public relations, the government, healthcare, community-based food and nutrition programs, US and international non-governmental agencies, and the food industry. The common thread to their divergent paths is a desire - and the ability - to make meaningful differences in the health of individuals, communities, and nations.
