The MPH in Public Health Nutrition prepares students to promote the nutritional well-being of population groups. Students learn to assess the nutritional needs of various populations, to plan and implement nutrition and food programs, and to manage nutritional programs in community and institutional settings. The degree offers one curriculum for those who are Registered Dietitians (RDs) and another for those without this credential. Graduates work to promote the nutritional well-being of population groups by assessing the nutritional needs of populations, evaluating and designing nutrition and food programs, and managing nutritional programs in community and institutional settings. Students have the option to pursue the dietetic internship.
The MPH in Public Health Nutrition is not a Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) as required by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics in the process of obtaining the Registered Dietitian credential. For information about available DPD programs, please click here.
