Which Master’s in Nutrition is Right for You?

Nutrition is at the center of human health. Science has shown us that nutrition is the strongest determinant of our health. The world, your community, your business, your family, and the natural products industry needs food-science-driven nutritionists and professionals who have a deep, evidence-based, and practical understanding of nutrition.

In recent years, there has been a shift in the industry from utilizing nutritionists for single-instance consultations in standalone facilities to the pronounced integration of nutrition within the continual management of chronic disease. With this shift to an integrated healthcare delivery system, we’ve seen a growing need for evidence-based nutritionists and a need for scientific knowledge of nutrition paired with business knowledge. The unification of science with business know-how is key to serving the natural foods, dietary supplement, and nutraceutical industry.
