Master of Science in Nutrition

Dominican’s M.S. in Nutrition combines a higher level of classroom education with practical research experience that enhances the development of your professional skills and your career

Dominican University's M.S. in Nutrition combines graduate level coursework with an option to complete our Individualized Supervised Practice Pathway (ISPP). Our accredited  program strives to generate future leaders that will successfully enter the dietetics field as competent professionals.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of jobs for dietitians and nutritionists is projected to grow 16 percent from 2014 to 2024, a rate much higher than average. And starting in 2024, CDR, the Commission on Dietetic Registration, will require a master’s degree for entry-level registered dietitians.

Dominican University is well positioned to meet this growing need. Our program offers a strong foundation in community nutrition using innovative and engaging teaching strategies. Students receive hands-on opportunities to work with diverse low-income families and provide nutrition education while being instructed in evidence-based practices and developing leadership skills. There is also the option to simultaneously complete the supervised practice experience in preparation for the RD exam through our ISPP.
