"I received my Master of Nutrition and Dietetics Degree from the University of North Florida (UNF) Graduate School in 2020. I chose this program because of the flexibility of being available online, it upholds a reputation for having some of the best and most prominent professors in the field, and offers numerous resources to help aid its students in being successful. I appreciated having the opportunity to conduct research for my thesis on a topic I was particularly passionate about with the help of my committee. I was able to connect with my classmates through online study groups and found the choice of classes to be unique and interesting. I was grateful for the option to quickly complete this program in under two years and receive the UNF Graduate School Grant with the support of my professors to provide a tremendous financial assistance. I highly recommend this program to anyone looking to get a great experience with research and with the flexibility of completing it virtually. I am grateful to call myself a Graduate Osprey!"

"As someone with a background in clinical dietetics, I was looking for a program that would allow me to hone my clinical skills, grow into a clinical researcher, and become more engaged in the field of dietetics. The Doctorate of Clinical Nutrition program did all of this and more. After completing the DCN program at UNF, I feel well-equipped for my new role as a professor and clinical research mentor. The DCN faculty at UNF are leaders in the field of Nutrition and Dietetics and are passionate educators. While in the DCN program, I felt as though my professors were committed to my success in the field. I will strive to bring the same commitment and passion with me into my new professional role."
