HMP3 Email Blast for Finals Week!  12.2.16


Health Beat is holding drop-ins during Finals Week!  Check here for hours of availability:



1.     Thurs. Dec. 8  Health Beat presents:  Columbia University Institute of Human Nutrition One-Year Masters in Nutrition Science, 3:00-4:00 pm in the Career Services Center Horizon Room. 


The one-year masters of nutrition sciences is an excellent option for students seeking a gap/glide year, or to enhance their health professions training with a master’s degree in Nutrition Science. 


This program prepares students for one of several possible further directions in which advanced training may be pursued. Many MS graduates go on to train in a laboratory discipline pertinent to nutrition, enter medical or dental school, or work a public health field in which knowledge of nutrition figures significantly.
