¿Qué aprenderé?

Our mission is to discover, translate, and disseminate health-related advances in the nutrition, food, and exercise sciences. The work of the faculty and graduate students in the Department of Human Nutrition, Foods and Exercise (HNFE) contributes significantly to scientific progress through molecular and clinical advances leading to prevention and improved treatment of obesity and chronic diseases; behavioral discoveries that lead to effective intervention programs for youth and adults; and interdisciplinary research teams who speed the translation of scientific discoveries to effective therapeutic and public health interventions that will benefit Virginians and the nation. We provide exceptional training for our students focusing on the preparation of future professionals who are knowledgeable, committed to life-long learning, ethical, culturally sensitive, and able to work collaboratively as well as independently. Training in the use of rigorous scientific inquiry is the cornerstone of the HNFE graduate program. We foster innovation across all three Virginia Tech missions areas - teaching, research, and outreach - by (1) supporting programs that promote sustainability and community viability and encouraging student participation in research and extension; (2) designing, developing, and implementing programs and policies through a participatory and shared effort between the HNFE research and teaching community; and (3) utilizing our teaching and research expertise to improve the health across diverse populations. Finally, the department's main focus is on addressing one of the most critical public health challenges of today - chronic disease.

The Department of Human Nutrition, Foods and Exercise offers a thesis-based Master's degree in one of three focus areas: Molecular and Cellular Science, Clinical Physiology and Metabolism, and Behavioral and Community Science. The minimum requirements for the MS degree are 30 graduate credit hours of which at least 20 credit hours must be graded course work (12 credit hours of 5000-level or higher) and at least 6 credit hours must be thesis research. The Department requires MS students to complete Translational Science in Human Nutrition, Foods and Exercise (HNFE 5204) and 3 credit hours of statistics. Students are also required to complete Ethics and Integrity and Diversity and Inclusion Training.
