Doctor of Philosophy

A student receiving a PhD degree will be able to conduct independent research in diverse aspects of nutrition science. Students will gain an advanced understanding of nutrition and metabolism and related biological and behavioral sciences. Students will be able to apply this knowledge to research in experimental, clinical, and public health nutrition.

Please note: In autumn 2020 and 2021, we are only accepting applications from students who are currently enrolled in our master’s programs. The suspension of admission to outside applicants gives us the opportunity to review and revise our curriculum and improve student opportunities.
