Spartan Accelerated Graduate Education (SAGE) Scholars Program in Nutritional Science

About 

The Spartan Accelerated Graduate Education (SAGE) Scholars Program in Nutritional Science is a combined bachelor’s and master’s program. Students in this program pursue a bachelor’s and master’s degree simultaneously. This program allows students to earn graduate credit while in their junior and/or senior year, reducing the number of semesters required for completion of a master’s degree.

Our program is designed to meet the needs of the student who is working towards a baccalaureate degree and seeks advanced preparation in nutrition science, nutrition education, geriatric nutrition, and foodservice/restaurant management. The program is intended to prepare candidates to assume leadership roles in their profession and communities and to provide the opportunity to acquire a foundation for doctoral study.
