Best Nutrition Masters Programs

The Top Nutrition Masters Programs – Fall 2015

In addition to rating the Best Nutrition Masters Programs, students often post comments regarding their experiences. One Class of 2015 student earning her Nutritional Sciences graduate degree from Texas Tech University commented: “Texas Tech University is an incredible school and I am so proud to be a Red Raider graduate student! I have had such incredible support already from my program director who continually goes above and beyond to make herself available and help students with anything they need. Having been a student at two other universities in Texas, I can say that this is a rare experience. Professors also communicate well with students and seem to be passionate about what they teach. Financial aid can be a bit time-consuming to deal with, but overall the process has been fairly smooth. Parking lots can be very far from where you need to be on campus, but Citibus does a great job transporting students where they need to go in a timely manner if you plan ahead. Lubbock is certainly not my favorite place in the world, but it does hold a special place in my heart because of the great experiences that I have had as a student (both undergraduate and graduate) at Texas Tech.”

METHODOLOGY reaches current and recent graduate students through scholarship entries as well as social media platforms. These program rankings cover a period from September 1, 2012 to September 30, 2015. assigns 15 ranking categories to each graduate program at each graduate school. Rankings cover a variety of student topics, such as academic competitiveness, career support, financial aid, and quality of network.

For a given graduate program, rankings are determined by calculating the average score for each program based on the 15 ranking categories. These scores are then compared across all ranked schools for that program and are translated into a final ranking for that graduate program, i.e., business and management. A given graduate program is not ranked until a minimum threshold of graduate student surveys is completed for that graduate program.
