Download MSc (Applied) Guidelines
The MSc Applied program is a course-based, non-thesis master’s program. It allows students to further develop knowledge and expertise in nutrition. Students are required to complete 29 credits in advanced Nutrition courses plus 16 credits related to a research project or an advanced practicum (reserved for registered dietitians). Careers include managerial positions for practicing dietitians, and careers in nutrition programs, government, and industry.
In addition to coursework students have the opportunity to undertake a project in the areas of clinical, community and international, or experimental nutrition. This may be done over the summer or during a term of study. The practicum option is suitable only for registered dietitians. This is not a route to credentialing as a dietitian, but advanced training in a selected area of advanced nutritional care.
