This program of study prepares students to provide services in nutrition and exercise interventions for the promotion of lifestyle change. The program is designed for those students with a degree in an allied health field.
- undergraduate grade point average of 3.0/4.0
- a 3.0 average in the following coursework: nutrition science, exercise physiology, anatomy and physiology, and organic and/or biochemistry
- a combined score of 950 on the verbal and quantitative sections of the Graduate Record Examination
conditional admission will be considered if:
- prerequisites are partially filled and gpa and GRE criteria are met
- undergraduate GPA is a 2.75 or higher and product of undergraduate gpa and sum of GRE scores (verbal and quantitative) exceeds 2499.
Admission to the MS in Nutrition and Exercise Science is a two-step process. Students first must be accepted into the Graduate School before being accepted into the program. The number of slots available in a class is limited each year, so it is possible that students will not gain admittance who have met all prerequisites.
