The Cedar Crest College (CCC) Master in Nutrition program offers graduate students the opportunity to engage in an interdisciplinary and individualized course of study that will best meet the student’s professional goals. Graduates will demonstrate the ability to apply evidence-based interventions in the education and treatment of health challenges in populations. In addition, students will develop the skills needed to define, advocate and affect change in health policy. Those who pursue the MS/DI pathway through CCC and BWS DI will have the opportunity to earn 12 credits from the DI to put toward the 36 required master’s degree credits.
The mission of the CCC Master in Nutrition is to develop leaders in the field of health promotion and disease prevention by providing educational experiences that provide the opportunity for students to gain the competencies and skills needed to assess, plan, implement, and evaluate health programming to meet the needs of diverse populations locally, nationally and globally.
In addition to the Master in Nutrition program, dietetic interns may also pursue CCC’s Modular Master of Science or Master of Science in Integrative Exercise Science program. A fact sheet about CCC’s dietetic internship degree options may be found here and more information about the program’s mission and objectives can be found here.
Admission and Application Requirements
BWS DI applicants who choose to apply to CCC may utilize their DICAS application materials instead of completing CCC’s standard admission process. Applicants will be required to complete a Release of Information Form allowing BWS DI to share their DICAS application. This application will be used in place of the letters of recommendation and current resume that lists all previous professional, job, and volunteer experiences. Interns will still be required to submit official transcripts which confirm conferred degree status to the CCC office of the Registrar.
For those who choose to apply to CCC through their general admission standards, more information about their admission requirements can be found here.
