About

The Department of Nutritional Sciences at the University of Connecticut offers both a Master of Science and a Doctor of Philosophy in Nutritional Sciences, as well as a Master of Science in Personalized Nutrition. 

Overview

Key facts:

  • University of Connecticut undergraduates can also pursue a fast track pathway (4 + 1 program) that allows them to earn both a Bachelor of Science degree and a Master of Science in Nutritional Sciences degree in 5 years. 
  • Students in the MS and PhD in Nutritional Sciences elect to emphasize one of four areas in human nutrition: Biochemical and Molecular Nutrition, Human Nutrition and Metabolism, Community/Public Health Nutrition, and Food Science/Nanotechnology. Each emphasis area is interdisciplinary in approach and is supported by other departments at the University of Connecticut and the University of Connecticut Health, as well as collaborative arrangements with other institutions. 
  • Opportunities for interdisciplinary research and study exist with other departments and university units. All programs require a thesis, dissertation or expanded paper, in addition to the completion of appropriate Graduate courses and examinations. The MS in Personalized Nutrition is fully online and does not require a thesis. This specialized MS in Personalized Nutrition uniquely combines courses in nutrigenomics, clinical nutrition, and nutritional biochemistry to provide a foundation of knowledge and skills for Personalized Nutrition professionals.

Programme Structure

  • Most M.S. candidates have enrolled in the Plan A program, which requires a minimum of a total of 30 credits, a written general examination, and a research thesis. The course work is designed to develop an advanced level of knowledge in nutrition and related sciences, and prepare the student for developing specific research competencies.
  • The thesis topic is selected by the student and the Major Advisor. Near the end of the course work phase, all M.S. students must successfully complete a comprehensive written General Nutrition Knowledge examination prepared by the Graduate Committee and the Advisory Committee.

General requirements

You must hold a baccalaureate degree or its equivalent from a regionally accredited college or university.The Graduate School does not require a third-party credential evaluation, however we accept evaluations from the following services:

  • NACES (National Association of Credential Evaluation Services) or
  • AICE (Association of International Credential Evaluators)

If your degree is a 3 year bachelor’s degree from India, Canada, Australia, Sri Lanka or certain other countries, we will not consider the degree to be equivalent with a 4 year US bachelor’s degree. Even if the degree has been evaluated as a 4 year degree by an outside credential evaluator that is a member of NACES (National Association of Credential Evaluation Services) or AICE (Association of International Credential Evaluators), we will not consider the degree to be equivalent with a 4 year US bachelor’s degree.
