Sport Nutrition and Dietary Supplementation Graduate Certificate
The topics of sport nutrition and dietary supplementation continue to gain momentum in the research world, as well as in clinical practice. Multiple peer-reviewed scientific journals are now dedicated to presenting literature specific to the area of sport nutrition. The same is true for the study of dietary supplementation. The graduate certificate in Sport Nutrition and Dietary Supplementation is particularly useful for registered dietitians/nutritionists, strength and conditioning coaches, personal trainers, and healthcare providers (e.g., nurses, pharmacists) who may receive questions from athletes and/or patients specific to the topics of sport nutrition and dietary supplementation. Consisting of 12 credit hours, students complete three required courses (each consisting of 3 credit hours), with a choice for the final three credit hours. Students with prior sport nutrition consulting experience can use this experience to fulfill the requirement for the final three credit hours of the certificate, through use of the Experiential Learning Credit option. All courses are delivered online and can be completed in any sequence.
