Master of Science in Clinical Nutrition

Rush University clinical nutrition dietitian consulting a student

The Master of Science in Clinical Nutrition program is available on a part-time or full-time basis. This program is ideally suited for part-time study so that you may continue to work.

Part-time students usually complete the program in three to five years. Full-time study usually requires 18 months. Whether a full- or part-time student, you must complete the required 36 credits within five years of matriculation.

You may be able to transfer credit hours of applicable graduate credit from another accredited university. To transfer credits, you must receive a “B” grade or better for the course and get approval from your supervisory committee.

Research is an integral part of the nutrition master’s degree program. You will have the opportunity to complete a research thesis, but it is not required.

Please note that obtaining the clinical nutrition MS degree only does not qualify you to sit for the RD exam.
