The objective of the Nutrition Science program from the University of Memphis is to ensure that our graduates obtain an advanced and comprehensive education in nutrition along with research training that includes experimental design and analysis, laboratory skills, and experiences in scientific writing and presentations. 

Key Features 

  • Interdisciplinary opportunities exist with faculty in biological sciences, chemistry and biochemistry, exercise and sport science, and psychology, as well as with faculty at other institutions within the Memphis area. 
  • You'll have opportunities to study the influences of nutrition at levels of organization ranging from genes to intact organisms. Although many students will have an interest in human nutrition, there are also opportunities to study the nutrition of companion, exotic and production animals.


The Dietetic Internship at the University of Memphis is currently granted accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND).

Programme Structure

  • The master’s degree in nutrition science is a 33-credit-hour program that offers a diversity of courses so you can develop a curriculum that is matched to your specific interests. A research project culminating in a formal thesis is required. 
  • Students entering the program will need to identify a research advisor who will assist in forming a graduate committee that will provide guidance in identifying courses and will assist in the design, performance, analysis and interpretation of your research. 
  • Students completing the degree program will be well-prepared for advanced graduate study (Ph.D. or M.D.), as well as for employment opportunities in academics, private industry or government. Moreover, the multidisciplinary training available will position graduates of the program to be leaders in the field of nutrition.
