About

The M.S. in Clinical Nutrition, offered by the University of Wisconsin Madison, is focused on core nutrition, clinical nutrition, professional skills, and electives (including public health). 

Overview

Key Features

Health professions have increased educational standards beyond the bachelor’s degree; in fact, the Commission on Dietetic Registration has increased the requirements to be eligible to take the Registration Exam for Dietitians to the completion of a master’s degree beginning in 2024. To remain competitive in the field and obtain the advanced competencies and skills needed in the job market, completion of a Master’s degree is becoming essential.

We offer a master degree in Clinical Nutrition at the University of Wisconsin Madison. This is advanced learning at its best, and is ideal for people with a strong background in clinical nutrition, confidence working at the graduate level, and a commitment to become leaders in clinical nutrition and dietetics.
