Overview

About this Degree

A Master of Science degree in Food Science, Nutrition and Health Promotion with a concentration in Nutrition at Mississippi State University is offered by selecting courses in Food Science, Nutrition and Health Promotion; Statistics; and Biochemistry. The Master of Science in Food Science, Nutrition and Health Promotion with a Nutrition concentration requires a minimum of 30 hours of graduate credit (including 6 hours of research/thesis), a research thesis, and a final defense. At least 12 hours of coursework must be taken at the 8000-level.

The Dietetic Internship is an innovative, post-baccalaureate program designed to prepare interns for rewarding careers in traditional and non-traditional roles. Interns complete the requirements for the Dietetic Internship and 6 hours of coursework in Food Science, Nutrition and Health Promotion with an emphasis in nutrition. The MSU Dietetic Internship Program provides hands-on experience in various clinical research, food service management, community nutrition, and nutrition education activities that registered dietitians encounter. Interns work with faculty, site coordinators, and preceptors in outpatient clinics, various inpatient settings, community settings, classrooms, and other locations as they build skills and broaden their understanding of modern dietetics.

Programme Structure

  • Upon completion of the internship, a graduate is prepared for the Registration Examination of the Commission on Dietetic Registration and successful entry-level practice. Students may also pursue a M.S. degree at the same time.
