Curriculum Outline

Curriculum Requirements

The Accelerated BS-MS is a 137 credit program.

Comprehensive Exam

All graduate students in the MS-Nutrition Program will be required to take a comprehensive exam to demonstrate understanding of the DPD course content. This exam will be given in the last semester of the program and will serve as the final exam in the Practicum course. The exam will be a multiple-choice exam that is similar in style to the ADA national registration exam for dietitians. In order to obtain the Verification Statement, a student must score at least 75% on the comprehensive exam and maintain good standing in the department. If a student scores < 75% on the exam, then the student will be allowed to retake the exam.
