Hood College is proud to officially launch the College’s Master of Science in Nutrition. The program, which is offered in a hybrid modality, is currently accepting students for the fall ’22 term with an expected graduation date set for summer 2024.
Supported by funding from Board of Trustees member Edith Howard Hogan ’59, the Maryland E-Nnovation Initiative Fund (MEIF) and Drs. Ruth Whitaker Holmes ’55 and G. Burtt Holmes, the nutrition science program will be one of five programs housed within the newly-established Ruth Whitaker Holmes School of Behavioral and Health Sciences. In total, the program and School of Behavioral and Health Sciences has received more than $2.2M in funding since 2019.
“Similar to the expansion of our nursing program with Frederick Health Hospital,” said Andrea E. Chapdelaine, Ph.D., president of Hood College, “this new program will provide an advanced education within a specialized area in response to heightened regional and global needs.”
