The term PhD refers to an advanced academic distinction given to those who complete predetermined, upper-level coursework related to a particular academic discipline. Most PhD programs take about twice as long as a typical bachelor’s program to complete, or about eight years.

Just what is a PhD in Nutrition? While students should expect course content to vary to some degree between school programs, the ultimate goal of these programs is typically to provide course participants with the skillset needed to establish lucrative and rewarding careers related to nutritional science. Frequently covered topics include general nutrition, food safety, nutritional biochemistry and exercise science, among related topics. Most PhD in Nutrition programs combine classroom-based education with that which is learned in various clinical or community health settings.  

Those who effectively earn nutrition PhDs are automatically given the prestigious title of doctor. They are also generally able to find high-paying, high-prestige positons in a variety of settings around the globe.

Because tuition costs vary so substantially from one nutrition PhD program to another due to factors such as location, duration of the program and any scholarships available, prospective students should get in contact with each school of interest for up-to-date tuition information.

Many profitable job opportunities exist worldwide for those who successfully earn a PhD in Nutrition. Many graduates of these programs go on to find work as nutritionists in school, community, athletic or clinical settings, while others find gainful employment as dieticians, food scientists, clinical researchers or educators. Some dietician or nutritionist jobs require licensure or specific certifications, but this tends to vary from one country to the next.

Many demanding nutrition PhD programs are offered online by schools around the world and are detailed in our broad database. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
