Our Public Health Nutrition (PHN) program is designed to meet the needs of students who want graduate training in health promotion, disease prevention, program development, and nutrition interventions.
Our faculty are internationally recognized for research in obesity prevention, child and adolescent nutrition, eating disorder prevention, nutrition epidemiology, and nutrition intervention.
In addition to the traditional public health nutrition degree, we offer students the opportunity to gain expertise in an interdisciplinary concentration such as global health, complementary and alternative medicine, public health policy, and health disparities.
For students interested in becoming Registered Dietitian, we offer a Coordinated Master’s Program. Our program also offers students interested in global health the opportunity to complete a Peace Corps experience as part of their masters program.
Full- and Part-time program
You may pursue your MPH on a full-time or part-time basis, but please note that the majority of the courses are offered only during the day. (Note: The Coordinated Master’s Program must be taken on a full-time basis.)
