Exercise Science-PreHealth Professions Concentration/Nutrition MS
This dual-degree program leads to a Bachelor of Science degree in exercise science and a Master of Science degree in nutrition. Students will study how exercise and nutrition contribute to the prevention and management of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, obesity, and diabetes. The BS/MS program offers students the opportunity to gain a thorough understanding of the contributions of nutrition and physical activity on human health and wellness. The BS/MS is excellent preparation for advanced graduate or professional degree programs in health professions. Graduates may find career opportunities in exercise and nutrition-based clinical research, health and wellness organizations, universities, corporations, hospitals, government, or start their own private consulting business. This combined degree program does NOT allow students to be eligible to become a Registered Dietician Nutritionist (RDN). Students seeking the RDN credential will need to complete the prerequisites for the Clinical Nutrition MS. The Nutrition Science BS is a good option for students seeking the RDN credential as it allows students to complete the prerequisites as part of the undergraduate degree. Please speak with your academic advisor for assistance.
