The College of Human Environmental Sciences offers a Master of Science degree in dietetics. This degree is only for students accepted in the Coordinated Program in Dietetics. See BSHES in Nutritional Sciences with an emphasis in Dietetics at http://ns.missouri.edu/nutrition_foods.html for application information and criteria. The Coordinated Program is a five year program, in which student's receive a bachelor's in year four and a master's degree in year five. The required supervised practice occurs in years 3-5.
