Master of Science in Nutrition and Exercise Physiology

The MS NEP degree offers students of all undergraduate disciplines a pathway into nutrition and exercise physiology education and research, preparing them for careers in healthcare, academia, and public health. In this two-year program, students work closely with faculty members on a research topic in the broad fields of nutrition and exercise physiology.

As part of the Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine, and with a strong network of clinical and community partner organizations throughout Eastern Washington and beyond, the department is well placed to provide training and research opportunities for students interested in clinical and community-based approaches to improving population health.

The MS NEP degree generally requires four semesters and potentially a few additional terms based on individual student research projects. Students complete 32 graduate-level credits covering a variety of topics, including a two-semester graduate seminar series and set of chosen electives.
