The objective of the MPH-Community Nutrition is the development of knowledge and skills required to assess nutritional needs of the community, and to design, implement and evaluate community nutrition programs. The specialization is intended to provide professional preparation for the student with specific interest in a career as a public health or community nutrition consultant with government, large community organizations or industry.
