Master of Science in Nutrition and Health Promotion

Master of Science in Nutrition and Health Promotion

The Master of Science in Nutrition and Health Promotion is a versatile degree that emphasizes community nutrition. Students are prepared for a wide range of careers as health educators, researchers, personal trainers, public health planners, and more. The program can be completed full-time in one academic year including summer session, or two to four years of part-time study (for U.S. students only). Classes are offered in the evening, and some courses are offered exclusively online.

In addition to completing nutrition and health promotion courses, the master's program includes a research project requirement. Students also may choose relevant electives from other Simmons graduate programs, including education, health care administration, library and information science, and communications management.

This program is designed for students with backgrounds in:

  • Nutrition
  • Biology
  • Health Sciences
  • Health Education
  • Athletic Training
  • Exercise Physiology
  • Physical Education

Those with bachelor's degrees in other fields, including career changers, are also welcome to apply; however, they must have completed specific science and nutrition prerequisites before applying.
