Master of Public Health in Nutrition

Online Master's Degree Program!

The Department of Nutrition and School of Public Health and Health Sciences at the University of Massachusetts Amherst have initiated a fully online Master of Public Health in Nutrition program that allows individuals to earn an MPH while continuing their careers in the nutrition, public health, and health care fields. Through online learning, e-mail, and Internet library resources, the Master’s Degree of Public Health in Nutrition allows you to gain knowledge and skills in nutrition and public health while maximizing flexibility in where and when you study. The program is accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH).
