Unlike existing master’s programs in nutritional science, the PSM includes 6 units of graduate-level practicum during which students will work with a partner organization to complete approximately 270 hours (45 hours per unit of credit) of supervised practice that will serve as their graduate capstone project. Students will also complete 6 units of PLUS coursework tailored to their profession and/or professional development goals.
