UB’s Master of Science in Nutrition distinguishes itself from other master’s programs in its focus on functional medicine and its growing value in the prevention and management of disease. Embedded in the curriculum is the concept of bio-individuality which enables clinicians to be able to provide customized diet and nutrient recommendations that will be effective. This is provided with an evidence-based scientific approach. The Human Nutrition Program provides a biochemical and physiological study of nutrition and its role in health and disease. Students gain skill in counseling in alternative and complementary medicine using nutritional strategies. The program further explores the role of nutrition as a preventive, adjunctive, alternative strategy for the prevention and amelioration of specific health conditions. The program also provides its graduates with a foundation for entering Ph.D. programs in nutrition. Program of Study The Human Nutrition Program consists of foundational courses in human physiology and biochemistry which expand into in-depth learnings on macro and micronutrients, biochemical individuality, human development, functional assessment, and nutritional therapeutics. An integrative and holistic perspective is interwoven with an evidence-based approach to assessing and counseling a client. The program provides this comprehensive study to individuals with busy schedules who would otherwise not be able to complete a graduate program without interrupting their work schedules. The program is accessible to individuals through classes which are held Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. -5 p.m., one weekend each month for 28 months; or through a distance learning format in which the program is offered online.

GRE scores are not required. Flexibility The Human Nutrition Master’s program provides this comprehensive study to individuals with busy schedules who would otherwise not be able to complete a graduate program without interrupting their work schedules. The program is accessible to individuals through an on-campus program with classes which are held Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., one weekend each month for 28 months, or through a distance learning online format. Accreditation The Human Nutrition Master’s program is licensed and accredited by the Connecticut Board of Governors Office of Higher Education, while the University of Bridgeport is institutionally accredited through New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). Accreditation by ACEND (for dietetics) is not required, since the Master of Science program is not a dietetics training program and does not include a coordinated dietetics internship required for eligibility to take the registration examination for the R.D. credential.

Behavioral Sciences and Health Promotion Changing Behavior to Create Better Health The most serious health problems in the U.S. today – heart disease, diabetes, cancer, stroke, and obesity – have substantial behavioral and social components. This program will give you a clear understanding of the role of behavior and social influences in illness and health, and the skills necessary to develop effective public health intervention strategies to reduce risk and promote health. You will learn how to help individuals and communities change behavior and improve their environment for a healthier lifestyle. You will learn techniques for behavior change—health promotion, health education, community needs assessments, and the development and evaluation of intervention programs, with sensitivity to cultural factors. You will develop the ability to examine and propose research focused on the behavioral, social, and cultural influences that impact the health of individuals, communities and populations. You will receive the necessary foundation for a career as a health educator, program coordinator, research associate, and program evaluator/researcher in a variety of settings, including public health agencies, private non-profit and advocacy organizations, and other health-related organizations. You will acquire skills appropriate for pursuing doctoral study in public health, especially in the area of social and behavioral sciences. Epidemiology Understanding the Cause, Analyzing the Spread, and Preventing Disease Epidemiology is the basic science of disease recognition, characterization and prevention. The application of epidemiologic tools and principles is increasingly important not only to public health but also in clinical practice. What causes disease? How is it distributed in the population? What are the determinants of disease and what makes certain individuals more susceptible to disease than others? And what can we do to protect more people and more communities from disease and death? Often called “the cornerstone” of public health, epidemiology studies these questions to understand disease processes and apply that information to develop and evaluate protection and control measures. In the M.P.H. in Epidemiology, you will study trends, patterns, and causes related to disease in populations. You will learn to create and interpret complex statistical models to understand risk factors for and solutions to diseases that affect public health. You will be trained to effectively communicate such research and findings to lay and professional audiences. The M.P.H. degree in Epidemiology provides students with the knowledge and quantitative skills necessary to participate in the areas of medical, clinical, and public health research. Successful completion of this program will qualify you for careers with health care providers, local and state health departments, federal agencies and the pharmaceutical industry. Environmental Health Science Explore the Interaction between Health and the Environment Our environment has a major impact on our health. We depend on clean air, clean water and a safe food supply to sustain ourselves and our communities. Agriculture, transportation, construction, energy production and use, and manufacturing all have a significant impact on the environment. And all of these industries introduce situations and questions that require the expertise of trained professionals. This program provides the conceptual framework and practical tools to recognize and address environmental hazards. You will learn to address issues of air and water quality as well as solid waste and environmental and industrial toxicology. In addition to being first-rate teachers, our faculty are all active practitioners and researchers; are all practicing toxicologists actively involved in many important and timely research projects. You will learn analytical and problem-solving skills as well as how to communicate with technical experts and their non-technical constituents. Environmental health professionals typically hold positions in industry, in compliance programs or as health safety officers; in consulting firms performing environmental monitoring or audits; in not-for-profit organizations as researchers and/or advocates; or in government in the areas of inspections and permits, water quality, food, sanitation, or air quality. The Department of Environmental Health Science offers the MPH degree and a graduate certificate in Industrial Hygiene. Health Policy and Management Inform Policy and Improve the Business of Health Care Health policy and management concerns the delivery, quality, and costs of health care for individuals and populations. M.P.H. students who concentrate in health policy and management are trained in the complex structures of health care delivery in the U.S., legal and ethical foundations of health care, and the policy processes designed to improve health care access among diverse populations. You will graduate with an understanding of the business, program, planning, delivery and policy areas of healthcare.

Testimonials "Ever since I established my own educational company, the international business strategies I learned at Benedictine have helped me globalize my business. Since I am a medical doctor and professor, I have been able to combine both the value of the public health field with a better understanding of how successful business models can be implemented. The professors in the program have extensive business backgrounds, and I learned a great deal from their experiences. Benedictine University gives me the opportunity to learn how to fulfill the vision and mission of my company." - Dr. Sam Suhail, online dual MPH/MBA student "I am currently an Account Executive for a health insurance organization. I have worked with this company for 11 years. I expect that in the future my Master of Public Health degree will be very helpful with my desire to work in the field of HIV/AIDS education with the hopes of educating on an international level.  I hope to work for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), or World Health Organization (WHO).  I was able to travel to Tanzania, Africa, with other students in June 2010. It was a medical mission trip with Benedictine University and Dr. Karen Maloney. While I was there, I had the opportunity to use my HIV counseling and testing certification. I tested a few of the children for HIV at the Imiliwaha orphanage in the village of Njombe. I was able to keep in touch with the diocese there and was invited back to do more HIV testing in six more villages as well as orphanages in the villages.  This will take place this summer, June 2012, for three weeks. I will use this experience to fulfill my internship hours. I am currently in my last MPH class and I will start on my certificate in Health Education in the fall." - Benita Thomas, online MPH student "The online learning environment and being able to set the pace for the degree has enabled me to obtain an advanced degree despite a very demanding work schedule…. I’m hopeful that a position as a regional medical director will be available in my area in the future. The Department of Health prefers candidates with MPH training. I’ve been able to network with contacts in the Health Department, and I’ve participated in a community health assessment for my area. I’ve learned a lot and have been able to incorporate seeking a degree into a 60-plus hour a week job." - Janna Hoisington, online MPH student "Doing the online MPH program gave me multitasking skills and the ability to keep working full time while taking classes…. I was put in charge of our health practices at my current job at a residential treatment facility. This program has served me well to keep pushing toward the future. I was able to implement a wellness program at the facility I work at for both staff and residents and have become the go-to person for health- and wellness-related questions." – Laura Kornegay, Online MPH Student [-]
