Penn Nursing’s innovative nutrition program is elevating nutrition’s profile as a leading health science. Working with colleagues throughout the University of Pennsylvania, Nursing faculty and students are pioneering in research that ranges from community health and food availability to studies of gut flora to neuroscience that allows chemo patients to maintain their appetites.

There are multiple options at the undergraduate and graduate levels for students interested in nutrition science: at the graduate level, Penn Nursing offers an interdisciplinary online Master of Science in Nutrition Science degree, a graduate certificate and a graduate minor. At the undergraduate level, we offer a nutrition minor and nutrition major , both of which are offered in partnership with the School of Arts and Sciences.
