BWS DI has established a partnership with The University of Alabama to provide Interns with the opportunity to enroll in a fully online, 30 credit-hour Master of Science program in Human Nutrition. The program is creatively designed to provide foundation knowledge in the summer before rotations start and to coordinate coursework and assignments with the internship rotations. Internship directors work directly with university faculty to align assignments and activities, and most students complete the degree within one year of finishing the program. Acceptance into the program occurs after computer match and out of state tuition rates are waived. Financial aid is available to cover tuition and living expenses, and there is no need for additional letters of recommendation or GRE Scores.
