Comprehensive academic advising throughout your time in the program will help you to develop a course map to best meet your professional learning goals with respect to public health methods, frameworks, and content depth.

Below is a sample schedule, but there are many ways to map your course of study. If you have questions about your course map and how it aligns with your professional and learning goals, please reach out to Sarah Zyba, Faculty Lead for Nutrition Concentration.
