Nutrition Education
Nutrition is an exciting field. Our graduates work in a variety of settings through a variety of modalities such as counseling one-on-one, educating groups, implementing activities in organizations and communities and on the internet, working in the area of food and food systems as well as participating in public health program planning and policy development. The field is ever changing, permitting our graduates to grow, use their creativity and change with their changing interests and skills. The field of nutrition has a place for you whether you are interested in food and food systems, working in communities or in clinical nutrition, or you have an entrepreneurial spirit. One graduate combined her passion and previous training in culinary arts with our master's degree and now hosts her own television cooking show and writes books on healthful cooking. Another graduate realized that with the availability of fast foods and convenience snacks, children in urban schools have little knowledge of the origin of foods. She and a team developed the Cookshop Program through which children learn to cook plant foods in the classroom and learn how food is grown by visiting urban vegetable gardens. And yet another graduate is a nutrition consultant to professional sports teams and conducts research on carbohydrate-loading and exercise endurance. The possibilities are many to make a difference in the world.

Since it was founded in 1909, the Nutrition Program has been a leader in integrating the findings of nutrition science, nutrition education, behavioral science and public health to develop strategies for promoting health through dietary change in individuals and communities.

The Nutrition Program is a personal and dynamic graduate program that emphasizes nutrition education and counseling, community involvement and understanding of food systems, while providing a solid grounding in nutrition science and clinical nutrition. Faculty are accessible and take an active interest in the education and career plans of our graduate students. By being part of the larger Department of Health and Behavior Studies and of Columbia University, the Nutrition Program offers access to a wide range of resources, both intellectual and technological.
