Saint Louis University

Through collaboration with the Department of Nutrition and Dietetics at the Doisy College of Health Sciences the dual MPH/MS prepares highly motivated students to design, organize, conduct and evaluate nutrition intervention programs in the public health sector.

The objectives for preparing public health nutrition specialists are:

  • To orient the student to the perspectives and points of view of public health practitioners in general, and public health nutritionists specifically.
  • To establish a foundation of knowledge essential to the practice of public health nutrition specialists.
  • To foster the development of skills, abilities and methods necessary for successful public health practice in general and public health nutrition in particular.

This integrated program requires completion of both the MS degree and the MPH Public Health Practice degree requirements. The MS practicum satisfies the MPH practice experience requirement. Course sharing between the two programs allows a full-time student to complete both degrees with a minimum total of 54 credits in two years.
