About the Program:

Looking to identify and solve problems? What about work in collaboration with physicians and other health care professionals? Maybe you want to improve lives as a registered dietitian (RD). No matter your goal, our Master of Science in Nutrition Diagnostics (MND) can help launch your career in medical nutrition therapy.

This 36-hour program is designed for practicing clinical RDs. If you have already completed the Nutrition Diagnostic Dietetic Internship, you can use those credits towards completing this Master's degree program! Our MND curriculum is identical to the MND/Dietetic Internship didactic coursework, excluding the supervised practice experiences required for a dietetic internship.

Your MND Experience:

You will dive into a variety of compelling topics—critical thinking, nutrition counseling, diagnostic and assessment methods, and health enhancement.

The program’s second half will build on your new foundation of skills and integrate hands-on techniques in research methods, clinical reasoning, chronic diseases, and evidence-based practice.

Apply now and complete your heroic journey of becoming a highly trained professional in the field of nutrition diagnostics!

". . . the Cox College Dietetic Internship program gave me an edge in the realm of clinical nutrition. The knowledge, skills and abilities I learned in my internship still help me conduct my duties as a dietitian."
