Nutritional Sciences Program


The field of nutritional science has unprecedented public interest. This is fostered by evolving links between diet and health, and the impact of one’s individual genetic makeup on nutrient utilization. The Ph.D. degree program in Nutritional Sciences is interdisciplinary, with participating CALS, COM, CLAS, and CVM faculty directing research of doctoral students, where the full spectrum of Nutritional Sciences is available. Emphasis areas include basic nutritional sciences, biochemistry and molecular biology, genetics, immunology, physiology, clinical nutrition, microbiology, and biostatistics.

Students are admitted to the program after the bachelor’s degree or a master’s degree in nutritional sciences or a related field. Applicants should have a strong undergraduate background in biological sciences and chemistry. Deficiencies may be made up during the first year of graduate study.
