Overview

Master of Science in Applied Human Nutrition

The Master of Science in Applied Human Nutrition program provides students with the opportunity for advanced-level study in nutrition, emphasizing issues related to community nutrition, food, and human nutrition

The program explores the theoretical foundations of nutrition through critical reflection on current research and practice within the discipline and drawing from other related disciplines.

The Master of Science in Applied Human Nutrition at Mount Saint Vincent University comprises three and a half units of coursework and one and a half units of thesis research.

Students seeking registration as a professional dietitian and who meet Partnership for Dietetic Education and Practice (PDEP) undergraduate competencies may also apply to the Internship Education Program when they apply to the Master of Science Applied Human Nutrition program. 

The Internship Education Program enables students to build on theoretical knowledge and internship experiences to fulfill the competencies required by PDEP to reach entry-level professional dietetic competence.

Students who are not seeking registration as professional dietitians may apply for the Food and Nutrition Practicum Program during their study in the Master of Science Applied Human Nutrition program.

Language pathway (conditional offer) is available

Students conditionally admitted to a graduate program of study, who have an IELTS score between 6.5 and 6.9 or the equivalent, will be required to successfully complete the Graduate Preparatory Program (GPP)

The GPP is designed to ensure that incoming graduate students have a high level of English language proficiency and a strong orientation to Canadian academic culture. 

The GPP consists of an intensive term-long 15 hour/week program offered by the International Education Centre (IEC) and an undergraduate academic course

The course is determined by the Graduate Admissions Committee for the student’s intended program of study and indicated on the student’s data form. This course is normally taken concurrently with the IEC program.


Academic background and requirement

Students normally have completed an undergraduate degree in nutrition, dietetics, foods, or related fields, e.g. health sciences, kinesiology, biology, biochemistry, health promotion/education, and nursing

Credit in the following undergraduate courses will normally be required: applied statistics; biochemistry; physiology; sociology, psychology, or communications; and 3000 or 4000-level human nutrition. 

Where there are deficiencies, additional undergraduate coursework (achieving a minimum grade of B) may be necessary in advance of graduate study.
