Attend one of our upcoming information sessions!

The M.S. program in Nutrition at Texas State:

Is student-centered: every incoming student is assigned a peer mentor that helps them navigate their first year and the challenges of graduate school.

Is research-focused: students are encouraged to participate directly in faculty-guided original scientific research. Students present their work at scientific conferences and are authors on peer-reviewed publications.

Offers a challenging and current curriculum: our faculty have a variety of expertise spanning molecular to community-based nutrition. Courses include experiential and service learning opportunities that allow students to gain real-world, relevant nutrition and dietetics competencies.

Supports students as they earn a verification statement at the graduate level: Students interested in becoming a registered dietitian can use courses in our graduate program to meet requirements for their verification statement.  Graduate students are also given preference for our dietetic internship.
