The Master’s degree concentration in Public Health provides a general mastery of public health beyond that of the undergraduate level. It is particularly recommended for those students who wish to: advance in their careers beyond entry-level positions; assume additional organizational responsibilities; or pursue a doctorate degree. General requirements include an internship and an option of a thesis or research project.
The concentration in Public Health Nutrition is designed to meet the needs of Registered Dietitians and Public Health professionals who want to work with individuals and communities to promote healthy dietary intake. It also prepares public health officials who want to work in the obesity and chronic disease management areas. Within the concentration, there is a track for Registered Dietitians and a second track for those with a health promotion/public health undergraduate degree.
