The focus of the Graduate level Nutrition Minor is to give students an option for more advanced nutrition courses in a manner that permits them to have documentation of this knowledge. This training will be useful for nurses who intend to practice in a nutrition-related field, for MPH students who choose to focus on nutrition-related issues such as obesity or global health, and for Penn students who intend to submatriculate for graduate level work at Penn and desire such coursework.
