Roberta Durschlag617-353-7488

If you received your undergraduate degree in a field other than nutrition, this program offers you basic and advanced study of nutrition.

The MS program will enable you to evaluate and implement the results of current research, solve problems and communicate effectively. You’ll study with faculty involved in research, education, administration, professional practice, communication, and consulting. As part of your program, you will develop a research proposal in an area of your choice and complete an individually designed practicum. Practicum experiences have been arranged in an eating disorders clinic, a private practice focused on nutrition for athletes, a clinical research center at a large teaching hospital, an outpatient cardiovascular clinic at a suburban teaching hospital and the offices of a nationally distributed nutrition newsletter.

With a Master of Science degree in Nutrition, you’ll have a wide range of career options including public health programs, nutrition and health communication, consulting or research, and food and nutrition-related businesses.
