Students in the molecular track also must take the BSTP Cell and Molecular Biology Course (CBIO 453/455) as well as Molecular Nutrition (NTRN 455). There is however ample opportunity to take elective coursework tailored to both the research and career interests of each student.
The doctoral student must complete courses in:
Advanced Human Nutrition
and elective studies
Whether in the Molecular Nutrition or in the Nutritional Biochemistry and Metabolism track, all students participate in research (each semester) starting with their first semester. In order to allow adequate research time, students take only 2 courses each semester and the rest of the credits (total of 9) consists of the research course NTRN 561.
