Nutrition is one of the most influential determinants for long-term health and wellness. In fact, research shows that most chronic diseases can be prevented, and in some cases reversed, with good nutrition. Record numbers of consumers and businesses are aware of these facts and are seeking health professionals that can offer a strong knowledge base in the field of nutrition.
In fact, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported in 2010 that employment of nutritionists and dietitians over the next decade will increase, and those "with specialized training, an advanced degree, or certification beyond the particular state's minimum requirement should enjoy the best job opportunities.”
The Nutrition and Integrative Health programs at MUIH will prepare you with the advanced skills and expertise to fill this growing demand and become a leader in the field. Our programs include a Doctor of Clinical Nutrition, Master of Science degree, and a Post-Master’s Certificate for healthcare professionals and others with advanced science training.
Designed to fill the tremendous and increasing demand for nutritionists who can work at all levels of the healthcare continuum, graduates of this program will be prepared to work as a critical part of multidisciplinary teams in a number of health and wellness settings. The program uses a cohort model to maximize peer to peer support and engagement and is offered primarily online with four weekend experiences on campus. READ MORE
