About

Simmons' College Master of Science in Nutrition and Health Promotion degree program helps students develop an advanced understanding of nutrition, fitness, and wellness. Graduates of the program evaluate health behaviors on a global level and seek to improve the health of our communities through research and education.

Overview

Whether you decide to study online through our new distance learning program or attend classes on campus—surrounded by the world-renowned teaching hospitals and research facilities along Longwood Avenue in Boston—our program is designed to extend beyond acute care issues to promote community health. Students learn the practical aspects of working in the field of nutritional wellness.

Our students come from backgrounds in nutrition, biology, health sciences, health education, athletic training, exercise physiology, and physical education. Upon graduation, they are prepared for a wide range of careers in areas such as research, community nutrition, and private practice.

Key facts:

  • According to the World Health Organization, health promotion enables people to increase control over their own health. It covers a wide range of social and environmental interventions that are designed to benefit and promote wellness by addressing and preventing the root causes of poor health, rather than focusing on treatment and cure alone. Armed with a Master's degree, graduates of Simmons' College Master's in Nutrition and Health Promotion program provide services to facilitate and maintain the health of individuals and communities.
  • Students in the Master's in Nutrition and Health Promotion program learn the fundamentals of wellness and health promotion, including how to critically review scientific evidence. Students customize their plan of study by choosing one of two tracks or concentrations: the Research track or the Entrepreneurship track.
