The Graduate program in Human Nutrition at Texas State University promotes the study of human nutrition, food science, and biotechnology with emphasis on promoting health and preventing disease. 


Graduate instruction is based on a variety of learning strategies, including lecture, seminar-style discussion, participation in research, and practical laboratory work using state of the art equipment and techniques. Graduates achieve the technical skills, scientific knowledge, and local, national, and global perspectives to integrate the fields of nutrition, food science and food biotechnology to address human health concerns of the 21st century. 

Dietetic Internship Concurrent Enrollment

Students enrolled in the M.S. program in Human Nutrition at Texas State University, who are interested in obtaining the registered dietitian (RD) credential are encouraged to apply for admission to the Texas State dietetic internship (DI) after they have completed at least one term. While up to nine hours of courses taken as part of the DI may count towards the M.S. degree, completion of both the M.S. and DI may require more course work than needed to complete the M.S. alone. Students interested in this dual option are required to meet with the graduate coordinator to determine courses required to complete both programs. It is important to note that admission to the M.S. does not guarantee acceptance into the Texas State DI. 

Programme Structure

Courses include:
  • Foundation Studies in Human Nutrition
  • Nutrition and Disease
  • Nutritional Supplements
  • Pediatric Obesity
