Master's Degree Pathway

Thirty-six of the 48 credits are completed through online courses and students are required to complete six credits on campus, offered as four 1.5 credit courses on weekends. 

The final six credits will require the completion of a clinical nutrition residency. The clinical residency may be completed where the student lives, or on the MUIH campus at the Natural Care Center. Students who live in states where MUIH does not have approval for distance learning internship/residency programs will complete a special case study projects and presentations in lieu of residency.
