The online Master of Science in Nutrition provides students with both evidence-based scientific knowledge and experiential learning. Our faculty members provide hands-on, personalized instruction and offer students a wealth of field knowledge and know-how.

Adelphi’s M.S. in Nutrition is presented in an interactive online learning environment designed to engage students and encourage participation in the key areas of nutrition health practice, both current and emerging.
Moodle, the online learning platform for the program, serves as a central location for faculty and students to access lectures, assignments, and discussion forums, as well as up-to-date resources including publications and workshops.
The program is largely recorded, meaning students can engage with the coursework at times that suit their schedule. Faculty often encourage VoiceThread participation to keep students connected even when they’re not together. Occasional live components of the program’s coursework include presentations by guest speakers, which are also recorded, and faculty office hours. Both are typically conducted via Google Hangouts.
While distance learners will never be required to come to campus, they are always welcome to do so, including for the graduation ceremony.
Interested students may choose to participate in an optional in-person networking field trip. Students who are unable to attend can access recorded activities and network online with other digital attendees.
The date, time, and location of the field trip will be arranged at a mutually convenient day and time.
The online M.S. in Nutrition can be completed in three years or less dependent upon a flexible or traditional program start (see the admissions page for the next start date).
