Ms in nutritional science in University of connecticut
Most M.S. candidates are enrolled in the Plan A program which requires a minimum of 15 credits, a written general examination, and a research thesis. The course work is designed to develop an advanced level of knowledge in nutrition and related sciences, and prepare the student for developing specific research competencies. The thesis topic is selected by the student and the Major Advisor. Near the end of the course work phase, all M.S. students must successfully complete a comprehensive written General Nutrition Knowledge examination prepared by the Graduate Committee and the Advisory Committee. The non-thesis M.S. program (Plan B) is available for a small group of students who already have practical experience in the field of Nutritional Sciences. This program requires that each student complete a minimum of 24 credits, pass the comprehensive written examination, and prepare a review paper that is to be presented orally to the Department.
