Nutrition — ABM
Accelerated Bachelor’s/Master’s Curriculum for Nutrition
The Nutrition Accelerated Bachelor’s/Master’s Program (ABM) offers outstanding students an opportunity to earn both the bachelor's and the master's degrees in less time and at less cost than usual. The ABM program allows these exceptional students to count 5-8 hours toward both the bachelor's and master's degrees.
The Bachelor of Science in Nutrition in either the Nutrition Science Option, Dietetics Option, or the Wellness Option can lead to a Master of Science in Nutrition (thesis or non-thesis). Below is an example curriculum for a student in the Dietetics Option pursing the Master of Science in Nutrition (non-thesis). Please see the Nutrition, Dietetics, and Hospitality Management website for additional information, ABM tracks and curriculum models.
Below is a chart of all the approved courses that can be taken in the ABM program and what course that replaces at the undergraduate level.
