Nutritional Sciences BSFCS/Foods and Nutrition MS(non-thesis)

The Nutritional Sciences Program prepares students for careers in the health sciences, including medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, and physical therapy. The completion of a master's degree may improve a student's likelihood to be accepted into the professional program of their choice.

Admission to Program

Students will apply to the pathway via an online application along with an unofficial transcript and a signed acknowledgment that they are aware of the criteria for them to be accepted to the graduate program. Acceptance into the pathway is not a guarantee of acceptance into the graduate program.

Students must have completed CHEM 1211-1211L, CHEM 1212-1212L with grades of C or better, taken FDNS 2100, and have a 3.5 GPA for admittance to the pathway.
