edX is pleased to announce the launch of an online Master of Science in Nutritional Sciences (MSNS) from the University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin). The program is designed to prepare graduates to work in community or education nutrition, corporate health and food production, or to expand the knowledge of current health professionals. The curriculum is focused on core knowledge related to advanced human nutrition with concentration areas available in Biochemical & Functional Nutrition and Health Promotion & Disease Prevention.
The MSNS program is ranked #5 Best Online Master’s in Nutrition Degree Program and is priced at $22,500. Admission is offered on a rolling basis with an application deadline of July 15, 2020. The first cohort will start August 30, 2020.
This new Master’s degree is the latest program to join edX’s portfolio of disruptively priced and top-ranked online Master’s degree programs. Master’s degrees on edX are unique because they are stacked degree programs with a MicroMasters® program component. A MicroMasters program is a series of graduate-level courses that provides learners with valuable standalone skills that translate into career-focused advancement, as well as the option to use the completed coursework as a stepping stone toward credit in a full Master’s degree program. The MSNS will be stacked from a new MicroMasters program that is forthcoming.
We are excited to build upon our partnership with UT Austin, which has been an edX partner since our founding in 2012. We look forward to announcing additional degrees and programs from them in the future.
“Many areas of the health sector expect a level of sophistication in understanding nutritional science,” said Molly Bray, UT Austin chair of the Department of Nutritional Sciences. “Employers increasingly expect future leaders in their organizations to have completed rigorous graduate coursework, and that is what we offer at UT Austin.”
