Join the vanguard of healthcare professionals offering patients new and more effective forms of self-help and health management. Study in our nutrition graduate program to become a person-centered healthcare provider who combines a rigorous scientific understanding of nutrition and body with proven techniques that support the mind and spirit as well.

Intended for nutritionists, dietitians, and healthcare providers with a science background, our MS in Integrative and Functional Nutrition supplements a standard dietitian education program with integrative and functional nutrition classes to promote well-being and prevent illness. Enhance your practice with new evidence-based holistic techniques and embrace new opportunities to help patients become their best selves. This degree may help you open doors in settings ranging from personal practice to hospitals and community health centers.  Health practitioners who have both scientific training in functional nutrition and the psychological and holistic understanding of integrative care will be key contributors to any healthcare-related interdisciplinary team.
