Accelerated BS/MS in Nutrition (DPD) Program Description

This pathway is for NFS majors who are interested in completing their degree and then continuing at Hunter to obtain a master’s degree and verification statement. Acceptance to the BS-MS accelerated track is a competitive option open only to Hunter College students in the NFS major. Students must complete the NFS major and academic requirements for their undergraduate degree in about 96 credits, must have an overall GPA of 3.5 and prerequisite GPA of 3.2 or better to be considered.  However, a 3.5 GPA in and of itself does not guarantee admission.

This accelerated pathway provides the opportunity for undergraduate students to remain at Hunter for their graduate coursework and provides students the opportunity for academic acceleration to a graduate degree. 

Since the MS-Nutrition curriculum meets the didactic program in dietetics (DPD) requirements established by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND), the credentialing arm of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND), it will qualify students from this BS/MS accelerated track to apply for Dietetic Internships and continue their professional preparation for the Registered Dietitian (RD) credential.
