Better nutrition. Better health. Stronger communities. The top Public Health Nutrition program of the University of Minnesota is designed for students who are committed to health promotion and disease prevention through healthy eating.


Program Details

The curriculum strongly emphasizes food access, nutrition policy, community nutrition interventions/programs, health disparities, nutrition assessment, and healthy eating throughout the life course.

The Public Health Nutrition program of the University of Minnesota is located in the Division of Epidemiology and Community Health, a Division that uniquely houses Epidemiology, Public Health Nutrition, Maternal & Child Health, and Community Health. This interdisciplinary structure provides students with access to courses and faculty across disciplines. Students also have the opportunity to specialize their training to individual interests and career goals.
