Top 6 Masters of Science in Dietetics 2019/2020

A Master of Science (MSc) is designed to be an advanced degree program concentrating on engineering and the sciences that can only be enrolled in after completing an undergraduate degree. While it does take additional time to complete, graduates are able to pursue even more advanced careers with higher salaries.

What is an MSc in Dietetics? The field of dietetics focuses on the foods people eat and their effect on health. Areas of study in this field commonly include biology, chemistry, anatomy, and food sciences. Students in this field can learn all about nutrition, although study is often divided between the practical and scientific understanding of nutrition.

A major benefit of studying dietetics is the skills you develop. These aptitudes can make more professional opportunities or a higher salary available. They typically include an understanding of the scientific process, analysis and evaluation, and research abilities.

The tuition and fees associated with enrolling in a master's program vary quite a bit. Your specific school and program will impact the cost, as well as the length of study and the country you are in. You should research these aspects before you enroll.

There are two major fields you can enter after graduating with an MSc in Dietetics, making it important to specialize while studying. The two types of careers are divided between the practical and scientific applications of nutrition. For the former, it is possible to become a dietitian, therapist, or trainer to help others stay healthy. If you pursue the scientific side of dietetics, you can become a scientist or researcher, studying food and nutrition to develop a better understanding of healthy eating habits and foods.

Begin your education in dietetics by finding a program that suits you, whether it's at a local university or through online study. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
