The PHN Program is a 2-year, full-time MPH degree program. MPH graduate students are expected to complete at least 48 units of coursework over four academic semesters and one summer. Students must complete both Schoolwide required courses as well as PHN required courses for the MPH degree in PHN. Elective courses may be chosen from anywhere in the school or university. Elective courses must be numbered 100 and higher to count towards the 48-unit minimum requirement for graduation. Public Health Nutrition (PHN) is an area of concentration emphasizing the application of food and nutrition knowledge, policy, and research to the improvement of the health of populations. Students in PHN will gain a perspective on the following critical questions: What are the most critical social, behavioral, and food and nutrition-related factors that affect health? What are ways that the design, implementation, and evaluation of programs can improve the nutritional status of the population or subgroups in the population? How can nutrition and food related public policies affect health, especially in vulnerable populations? How can global, national, state, and local community programs be designed to improve the nutritional status of the population as a whole and those at particular risk?
