Earn your degree in nutrition at Syracuse
Syracuse University offered its first nutrition courses in 1917, which means we are now in our 100th year of educating future food and nutrition professionals. So we know nutrition. Over the last century, nutrition education needs have evolved, and so has our nutrition program.
On campus, students benefit from hands-on learning in culinary labs working with experts in nutrition, food policy and public health. Our Nutrition Assessment, Consultation and Education (ACE) Center prepares students with traditional and emerging professional competencies critical to effective nutrition practice. A purposefully outfitted demonstration kitchen supports our integrative nutrition curriculum, which uses food as medicine to support disease treatment. Our new facilities offer a level of sophisticated technology that parallels—and in some cases exceeds—what students encounter in the field upon graduation.
Syracuse’s Didactic Program in Dietetics is accredited by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics’ Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics.
Our programs include:
- Bachelor of science degrees in Nutrition and Nutrition Science;
- Master’s degrees (MA and MS) in Nutrition Science, and;
- Certificate of Advanced Study: Dietetic Internship
Experiential learning requirements are deeply rooted in a strong network of community-based partnerships. Our current nutrition-specific study abroad programs include exploration of Mediterranean food and culture in Florence, Italy; South Asian culture: family, food, and health care systems in India, and; our newest offering bringing students to London to explore food policy. Hands on-field learning is often linked to faculty research and affiliations with organizations of professional significance, such as the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Increased emphasis on healthy lifestyles, disease prevention, growing and aging populations, and diet-related disease epidemics continue to spur great demand for professionally trained individuals with degrees in nutrition.
Falk College has embraced the field of nutrition for a whole century because of its unlimited potential to change the world. The change you want to see in the world starts with you—and it starts today.
