Postgraduate Opportunities

Most career opportunities in Nutritional Sciences require training beyond the undergraduate level. The Major Program provides excellent preparation for entry into postgraduate studies in nutrition research or for a professional faculty such as medicine and dentistry. Although careers in basic or clinical nutrition research, teaching, health promotion, nutrition counseling or community nutrition require a more advanced degree (MSc, PhD or MPH), some graduates find immediate employment in the food and pharmaceutical industries in product development, quality control or marketing.
