MISSION

The mission of the UWS master’s in human nutrition and functional medicine (HNFM) program is to prepare learners to serve as outstanding health care clinicians, consultants, educators, administrators and researchers in the field of human nutrition and functional medicine.

PROGRAM

Our clinically-oriented human nutrition and functional medicine program is the only fully accredited master’s degree in functional medicine, having been granted regional accreditation from the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, the highest level of academic accreditation available in the U.S. This program is 100 percent online as offered as a collaborative endeavor between UWS and the Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM), the organization which founded and developed the key functional medicine concepts used today.

Functional medicine is a science-based, patient-centered and systems-oriented approach to helping people achieve and maintain excellent health. This is accomplished primarily through natural methods, with diet and nutrition as a central focus. It is a forefront model for health care practice that seeks to address the causes of disease and dysfunction rather than suppressing symptoms. Founded on a holistic view of health, functional medicine delves deep into the biochemical and genetic individuality of each patient.

Why choose UWS for a master’s in nutrition?

This program includes advanced instruction in clinical nutrition, similar to other master’s level nutrition programs, but it goes far beyond by also presenting extensive educational content on functional medicine principles and practices derived from the Institute for Functional Medicine. These include important interdisciplinary and evidence-based perspectives, patient assessments and clinical interventions designed to enhance the function of the whole person.

It is primarily a clinically focused degree, with emphasis on treating individual or multiple conditions and their risk factors using dietary and nutritional interventions. Every course contains elements of clinical assessment and diagnosis. There is also a strong focus on wellness promotion and general health in order to meet the clinician’s primary goal of preventing disease and metabolic dysfunction before they occur.

SCHEDULE

The program consists of 50 quarter-credits of graduate coursework (33 semester credits) and can be completed in seven quarters (under two years) if taken at the recommended pace of 7-8 credits (usually two courses) per quarter, though students may move more quickly or more slowly through the program. We recognize that the life situations of our students vary considerably in terms of their family, employment and community commitments, thus we are flexible with regard to speed and prefer that students take the time they need in order to learn the material well.

Additionally, it is possible to take a leave of absence for a quarter or more if needed. As long as the intended schedule is communicated with the registrar, it is possible to extend the program to better suit a student’s individual needs.

Classes are admitted twice per year, with Fall (October) and Spring (April) starts.

Master of Science (MSc)

The MSc thesis should be focused on a novel question within the student’s chosen discipline which allows the student to learn and fully appreciate the entire research process from the generation of an idea through to the publication of their findings in a peer-reviewed journal. The entire MSc should be focused so that the student can complete data collection and defend their thesis within a two year time period. Students are encouraged to present their work at one or more national conferences specific to their field of study.

Each student in this Program is required to complete a minimum of two graduate level half-courses. Additional graduate level course work is often required and is determined at the discretion of the Supervisory Committee. Early in the program of studies, each student must prepare a research proposal in a standard format. This document is critically reviewed by the supervisory committee. In order to fulfill the requirements of this degree program, each student is required to write a Master’s thesis and successfully defend it during an oral exam. Standard University procedures, provided by the Faculty of Graduate Studies are adhered to regarding thesis format, composition of Supervisory Committee and completion of the oral exam. A typical M.Sc. program is completed in two to three years of full-time study. Provisions are in place which allows students who enter the M.Sc. Program and make exceptional progress to move directly into the Doctoral Program. This opportunity to move directly to the Doctoral Program requires a strong recommendation of the supervisory committee and approval of the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
