The Master of Science (M.S.) degree Nutrition Program is suitable for persons planning to pursue a doctoral degree in nutrition or other related areas and for persons preparing to teach at the secondary or university level. The program provides background experience for those interested in research careers in academic or industry settings and provides advanced training in basic nutrition for physicians and other health professionals.
A minimum of 48 units are required for the M.S. degree. Two options, a thesis (research track) and a nonthesis (course work track), are available. For the research track, the student fulfills the core requirements and implements and completes a research project that culminates in either a publishable manuscript or a thesis. For the course work track, the student fulfills total unit requirements by completing courses in nutrition and by participating in an ongoing research project. A written comprehensive examination is required for both options.
