The MSPH program in Human Nutrition from Johns Hopkins University is designed to train professionals to focus on understanding and solving public health problems in food and nutrition across a diverse societal landscape.


The Human Nutrition program from Johns Hopkins University prepares students to assume professional, technical and management positions within public health nutrition programs or government, international or non-government agencies, universities, hospitals and private industry. The MSPH program also prepares students with a foundation of knowledge and skills for carrying out subsequent doctoral study and research in the field of human nutrition, or training in medicine. 

The MSPH in Human Nutrition, based in the Department of International Health, is focused on both domestic and international issues with a focus on disadvantaged populations. Through the practicum requirement students will have the opportunity to gain experience working with global or domestic public health organizations. 

Programme Structure

There are four overarching academic competencies that students are expected to master during the course of their MSPH program. Students should

  • Identify and interpret public health nutrition problems and characterize these problems in terms of measurable indicators
  • Analyze relevant nutrition data and interpret scientific evidence to develop and implement prevention, control, and evaluation plans
  • Design, manage, and evaluate nutrition-related research or programs in a field, laboratory, or clinical experience—from conception of ideas through data collection and analysis—to inform guidelines
  • Communicate through written reports, oral presentations, and other media nutrition information of high technical quality and program or policy relevance
