Applications for the nutrition education concentration are accepted on a rolling basis. Although we accept on a rolling basis, courses are not offered every semester.
Students applying for the School Nutrition Specialist concentration must apply by June 1st of the preceding academic year to start the internship in the fall. Students admitted after June 1st may still begin their studies in the fall in the other required master degree courses.
- Applicants must have earned a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited college or university and must submit an official transcript from each college or university attended as an undergraduate or graduate student.
- Applicants are required to possess an overall under graduate quality point average (QPA) of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, including acceptable grades in science courses.
- All pre-requisite courses must be completed.
- Applicants who do not fulfill the QPA requirement but have a minimum quality point average of 2.7 on a 4.0 scale will be considered for admission after they complete two graduate courses at Framingham State University with a grade of ‘B’ or better. These courses must have prior approval by the Program Advisor.
- Applicants must provide two letters of recommendation from professors, supervisors, and/or colleagues, submitted on the Framingham State University Letter of Recommendation Form and sent directly to the University by the recommender.
- Applicants must submit a typed, 300-word personal statement discussing their motivation for seeking a master’s degree in view of prior formal education, current job responsibilities and career plans.
Applicants are evaluated based on numerous factors including previous college course work, letters of recommendation, and personal statement.
