"Nutrition science" is a broad discipline. Sociological, behavioral, policy, public health, medical, agricultural and biologic approaches represent just a few of the nutritionally relevant areas for graduate education in our program.
Human Nutrition is grounded in the science of nutrition. We want all of our students to understand the metabolism and function of nutrients, as well as the scientific basis for the relationships between diet and disease. We also want our students to appreciate the ways in which nutrition science is utilized to improve the health of people and how research is utilized to set public policy.

Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100.
After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department.
Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
