Grounded in the natural and biological sciences, the Master of Science in Nutrition program provides advanced study in human nutrition, including modes of inquiry in the field, the role of food and nutrients in human biology, and in the physical development and maintenance of health and well-being of individuals in the lifecycle.
Students will develop the skills to critically evaluate current and emerging issues in the field, and the tools for effective advocacy and professional involvement. The discipline of nutrition is explored recognizing the interrelationships that exist among people, diet, health, quality of life, and in the context of the modern food system.
