The MS expands the knowledge of the biochemical basis of human nutrition as it relates to health, disease, and disease prevention. The MS has a strong clinical and research emphasis that prepares graduates for work in academic centers and research facilities as well as traditional clinical nutrition and management settings. The mission of the MS is to train dietetic professionals in the methods, implementation and interpretation of nutrition science, who are prepared to apply and advance the field of nutrition in research, clinical, management, or community areas of practice. The MS degree is offered with a thesis or non-thesis option
Students in the program take graduate coursework in biostatistics, physiology, medical ethics, nutrition physical examination, and advanced metabolism of macro and micronutrients. Working under the guidance of a faculty mentor, each student completes a thesis or capstone project, and presents the results of his/her project both in written and oral formats.
