Our top-ranked department is unlike any other in the nation. Because we are positioned within a school of public health and a school of medicine, we can provide students with a broader range of faculty expertise and instruction and greater opportunities for critical, ground-breaking and innovative research. The work of our faculty members and students makes a real difference in people's lives. Our goal is to advance nutritional solutions to problems in public health and educate the next generation of leaders in nutrition. The department offers undergraduate, graduate, doctoral and postdoctoral degree programs, as well as training to support certification as a registered dietitian (RD).
We weigh multiple factors in admissions decisions. If you have questions about your qualifications for the program, please contact us.
The Bachelor of Science in Public Health (BSPH) Program in Nutrition introduces the undergraduate student to the science of nutrition in health and disease and to social and behavioral aspects of eating in the context of public and individual health. The Department of Nutrition is one of the top-ranked Nutrition Departments in the country. The curriculum offers a wide range of courses on the nutritional and epidemiological aspects of human diseases. It also allows students to participate in nutrition research projects or explore other related areas of interest. A BSPH in Nutrition prepares students for graduate study in nutrition, medicine, pharmacy, or dentistry or for entry-level positions in public health and/or dietetics that do not require a registered dietitian.
