PhD in Nutrition and Exercise Physiology

The PhD NEP degree offers an intensive research and training experience in the broad fields of nutrition and exercise physiology. Students are matched and work closely with a faculty mentor on research topics with application to clinical, community, and population health.

The PhD program generally requires six semesters of graduate credits. Individual student research projects and work on the dissertation will vary and could require additional time.
