MS in Human Nutrition

Overview

The Nutrition Institute

Established in 1977, the Nutrition Institute offers a science-based program for newcomers to the field and health care professionals who wish to integrate clinical nutrition into their practice. The Institute’s mission is to provide a sound understanding of the principles of nutrition and its role in attaining a longer, healthier life. Through activities in education, research, and workshops, the program seeks to raise the awareness of the value of nutrition in promoting wellness and managing illness.

The Human Nutrition Program

The Human Nutrition Program consists of foundational courses in human physiology and biochemistry which expand into in-depth learnings on macro and micronutrients, biochemical individuality, human development, functional assessment, and nutritional therapeutics. An integrative and holistic perspective is interwoven with an evidence-based approach to assessing and counseling a client.

The program provides this comprehensive study to individuals with busy schedules who would otherwise not be able to complete a graduate program without interrupting their work schedules. The program is accessible to individuals through a distance learning format in which the program is offered online. Students will only come to campus one time at the conclusion of their program to take the cumulative final exam.

Support for Alumni

UB continues to support its alumni of the Nutrition Institute by offering access to graduates to our World Class digital research library housing over 50,000 digital books and over 80,000 electronic journals to support their continued research and clinical work. In addition, the Nutrition Institute offers post graduate seminars, taught by leading researchers and clinicians, held on weekends, to further enhance our graduates’ clinical knowledge.
