New program in Cox College’s Nutrition Diagnostics department

It’s official! Cox College has been approved to launch a Master’s in Nutrition Diagnostics Graduate Program next spring! This innovative program is a fast-track to becoming a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN).

Students in the RD fast-track program will be empowered with a deeper understanding of nutrition and its impact on human health. RDNs are uniquely qualified to identify and process nutritional health-related problems, and our students will be trained in evidence-based methods to learn these skills.

A significant benefit for this program is the ease of entry. This is a 16-month, three semester master’s program and students do not need an undergraduate degree in nutrition or dietetics to apply. Our Nutrition Diagnostics faculty is an impressive group and we’re so excited to see where they take this program!
