The Public Health Nutrition MPH offers two curriculum tracks (Standard Program or Coordinated Master’s Program) which provide students with a curriculum that offers flexibility and opportunities for customization. Coursework emphasizes nutritional assessment, program planning, health behavior change and intervention strategies, and policy development.
Students enrolled Fall 2018 or later
The School of Public Health has revised their curriculum across programs and divisions, in order to meet the new guidelines issued by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH). Students who enroll in Fall 2018 or later will meet the following revised curriculum:
Standard Program (42 credits): the standard program is available for students with or without nutrition/dietetic backgrounds. Coursework emphasizes food access, nutrition policy, community nutrition, health disparities and healthy eating throughout the life course.
Coordinated Master’s Program (55-62 credits): The coordinated master’s program provides both an MPH in Public Health Nutrition and the required coursework and internship hours to be eligible to take the RD exam. This is a competitive program with only 11 spots available each year.
Students enrolled prior to Fall 2018
Students who enrolled prior to Fall 2018 should follow the requirements that were in place at the time. Please refer to curriculum information in the student guidebook according to the year of your enrollment.
