An 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 specialization offers one curriculum for those who are Registered Dietitians (RDs) and another for those without this credential. Graduates work in hospitals; clinics; community programs; local, state, or federal government health departments and in international nutrition programs.
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.
