About the Program

If you want to understand and improve a population’s nutritional choices, consider our program, which can give you the skills you need to make long-lasting, sustainable improvements to both individuals and communities. In fact, our coordinated Master of Public Health and Master of Science in Nutrition Sciences with a Dietetic Internship, Clinical Track (MPH/MS) can make you a leader in this field. 

To be admitted into the MPH/MS program, which is offered in conjunction with the UAB School of Health Professions, you must already have a BS in Nutrition/Dietetics from a program that is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. You must also be first admitted to the UAB School of Health Professions. Once you begin the program as an MPA student, we will provide you with a foundation in public health centered around an evidence-based model. Up to 12 credit hours of your MPH program, which can be completed online, will be shared with the MS program so you may complete your degree in a timely manner. In addition, we’ll give you opportunities to focus additional training in areas such as healthcare organization, health behavior and program development, health policy, and many other areas of public health. For more information about the MS in Nutrition Sciences program visit the UAB School of Health Professions website.
