Master of Health Science in Nutrition Communication

This first-of-its-kind program in Canada focuses on advanced communication and knowledge translation skills for interpreting scientific evidence and tailoring nutrition education and counselling for diverse audiences. 

Whether creating communication campaigns, counselling patients or engaging with the media, dietitians are Canadians’ most credible source of nutrition information. 

This program will prepare you to apply the principles of adult education, accessibility, and universal instructional design in your everyday practice. 

The university's flexible learning approach enables students to tailor their education to meet their professional development needs.

The Accredited Practicum option is a professional program that prepares future dietitians for success in traditional and evolving career paths.

The Major Research Paper/Project (MRP) option enables experienced dietitians to enhance their nutrition communication skills, add value to their current roles or gain the tools they need to embark on a new career.

TMU offers full-time enrolment for practicum and MRP streams. Part-time enrolment is not available.

Both options involve two terms of coursework, followed by the practicum or MRP component:

  • Practicum students complete two full-time practicum courses during their third and fourth terms of study. To enrol in this option you must be eligible to study in Canada and have graduated from a Dietitians of Canada or PDEP within the past three years.
  • MRP students complete their final project during their third term of study.
