This program of study prepares student 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.
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 class is limited each year, so it is possible that students will not gain admittance who have met all prerequisites.
