Updates for students, alumni, and supporters

Update | Master of Science in Nutrition Program

Our graduate program continues to evolve as the field of nutrition changes. We applied to become partners with the American Nutrition Association for the Certified Nutrition Specialist (CNS) credential. This partnership will help us support and welcome students who seek the CNS and wish to complete their educational requirements at UND. We will add one more course to our curriculum in Integrative and Functional Nutrition as well as updates to several of our current courses to include stronger focused information on clinical nutrition care. As North Dakota updated their licensure laws with a statute effective August 1, 2021, we are able to support more licensure options for our graduates and the needs of Nutrition & Dietetics.

Our first cohort in the Graduate Certificate in Health and Wellness Coaching will complete the certificate this summer. There is one student currently enrolled in the Graduate Certificate and we have another student beginning the program this summer. Additionally, four of our MS-seeking students are completing the coach training as part of their graduate program requirements.

We have a series of videos launching to share student experiences. Visit the playlist below to learn more about their experience!
