Nutrition and Food Systems MS


Are you interested in having a career that promotes a healthy lifestyle? The online Nutrition and Food Systems Degree offers opportunities to pursue and advance in dietetics, child nutrition, food and nutrition service management, and community nutrition. Courses in areas such as leadership, nutrition counseling and education, and health promotion complement the traditional areas of dietetics, creating a well-rounded food and nutrition professional. Students not pursuing a dietetic internship also have opportunities to pursue careers in dietetics, school food service, child nutrition program management, food and nutrition services management, and community nutrition. The curriculum provides students with an understanding of research design and advanced knowledge in nutrition and/or food systems management.

The fully online Master of Science in Nutrition and Food Systems emphasizing Dietetics Practice enables students who are enrolled in a dietetic internship to complete half of their degree concurrently with supervised practice, while the remainder of the Online Nutrition and Food Systems Degree requirements can be completed fully online. This is your life, plus college.

The University of Southern Mississippi is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools of Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC). That means you can expect a program with the highest standards and quality.
