- Nutrition, M.Sc.
- Duration : 2 years
The Graduate Program in Nutrition at Appalachian State University is a rapidly growing program. We draw students from around the country to the beautiful High Country of North Carolina to our Combined Program that includes a Master of Science degree and a Dietetic Internship accredited by ACEND.
The health and fitness field has many career options, so when you're trying to choose a career, you'll most likely want to first determine what type of degree you should pursue. Job options may differ if you earn an associate degree instead of a master's, for example. Some careers available within the health and fitness field include:
Health club manager
Positions such as personal trainer, wellness coach, fitness consultant and athletic coach involve working directly with individuals to help them to improve their physical fitness for health or athletic performance. Health club manager and fitness club owner are business-related positions in which the work is mostly administrative.
The program draws on the strengths of our College of Health Sciences, Appalachian State University, and indeed the whole region. Here are four reasons to consider Appalachian as your first choice destination for graduate school and an internship. Program Highlights: The program requires completion of either 39 credit hours with or without a thesis. Research (NUT 5901 or NUT 5999) is conducted in the summer between the two years of the program. The Dietetic Internship meets the competencies as mandated by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics.
