The program offers students flexibility in designing their course of study based on academic and career goals. Thirty graduate credit hours are required for the MS degree including seven credit hours from two required nutrition courses, at least 21 total credits from elective nutrition courses, and the remaining credits chosen from electives. For this reason, there is no one standardized curriculum for the MS in nutrition.
This program flexibility allows students who subsequently wish to apply to dietetic internship programs to complete their internship application required courses (DPD) while also earning their MS nutrition degree. The flexibility of the Nutrition program of Case Western Reserve University also offers students the opportunity to participate in research, community experiences and leadership opportunities to maximize their future career plans.
The MS in nutrition degree prepares students for careers in a variety of health care settings, government or non-profit organizations, corporations, private practice, wellness-related industries and professional degrees such as medicine, dentistry, physical therapy, physician assistant programs. In addition, the program provides students the opportunity to improve their academic record and gain valuable experience in research and applied nutrition to enhance their competitiveness for doctoral level study in nutrition and entrance into medical school. Students can pursue the MS degree either full or part-time. Students can choose to complete a thesis (Plan A) or take a comprehensive exam (Plan B) to complete their degree.
