Nutrition and Food Sciences
Master of Science (MS)
University of Vermont in Burlington, VT
Faculty research encompasses both basic and applied aspects of human nutrition and food science. Current studies focus on Web-based interactive multimedia tools for teaching and research, Internet-based weight management programs, milk chemistry, cheese technology and food microbiology Since our faculty members` research interests are diverse, prospective graduate students should visit our faculty info section to review their research interests and contact individual department members for information about ongoing research projects and fellowship/assistantship opportunities. The department mission is to study the relationship between nutrition, food science, health and fitness (preventive nutrition), and between diet and disease (therapeutic nutrition). Faculty research encompasses both basic and applied or community aspects of human nutrition and food science and technology. Research is being conducted on: the impact of attitudes and behaviors toward eating and exercise on body weight and composition; web-based interactive multimedia tools for use in teaching and research; behavior modification programs to improve individual eating behaviors; testing the effectiveness of Internet support on the long term management of obesity; factors affecting the nutritional status of children; milk chemistry and cheese technology (i.e., structure, function, and properties of mozzarella and goat's milk cheese); chemistry and processing of infant formula; and food microbiology. The Department of Nutrition and Food Sciences offers thesis-based and non-thesis Master of Science degrees. The thesis-based M.S. degree is a course and research based program, with 15-24 credits in course work, and 6-15 credits of research. The minimum number of credits required is 30. A thesis is written and there is a defense. A non-thesis M.S. degree also requires 30 credits of course work, although a student, at the discretion of their advisor may choose to complete a 3-6 credit internship or project which would replace some of the course work. The non-thesis M.S. does not require a thesis or a thesis defense.

Dietetics, Nutrition, and Food Sciences
Bachelor of Science (BS)
University of Vermont in Burlington, VT
Dietetics is a growing profession as health care moves from treatment to prevention. Health-care reform and policies discussed in Washington and across the country all include prevention related components. Although many health professionals are interested in prevention, Registered Dietitians are at the cutting edge of prevention, because so many preventable diseases and conditions are tied to food and nutrition. Faculty in the Department of Nutrition and Food Sciences recognize the great value to all undergraduate students to participate in some kind of field or community placement. Therefore, students majoring in dietetics are required to successfully complete at least one credit in a practicum course. Dietetics is a profession concerned with the science and art of human nutritional care, an essential component of human health science. The didactic program in Dietetics is accredited by the: Accreditation Council for Education and Dietetics Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. This program prepares students for careers as Registered Dietitians by providing the undergraduate requirements needed to apply to dietetic internships. To become a Registered Dietitian, students must complete the didactic program in Dietetics, complete an ACEND accredited supervised practice/internship program, and pass the National Registration Examination for Dietitians. This major prepares graduates to counsel people about the preventive and therapeutic role of nutrition in the maintenance of health and fitness.

Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems
Bachelor of Science (BS)
University of Rhode Island in Kingston, RI
Students completing this interdisciplinary program will graduate with the skills and knowledge needed to contribute to the sustainable development, production, harvesting, management, and utilization of terrestrial and aquatic microorganisms, plants and animals by society worldwide. The major will allow participants to explore the food chain, from farm to plate to waste and back, emphasizing sustainability, impacts on human health, and resilience from economic, environmental, and societal viewpoints. Core values of this interdisciplinary program that distinguish it from more traditional agriculture programs include an emphasis on the intrinsic value of heterogeneous scales of production (from small farms that sell directly to consumers to large scale producers), preserving local food cultures and biodiversity while understanding the way other cultures produce and use food (from local to global), using an ecosystem-based approach to agriculture (also integrating the contributions of aquaculture and fisheries), and the greening of urban landscapes.

Food Systems
Bachelor of Science (BS)
University of Vermont in Burlington, VT
As a leader in food systems nationally, Vermont offers students access to a living classroom, a working laboratory, and professors who think as broadly as the disciplines they straddle. But once you're here, you'll just call it home. The B.S. program deeply educates students on all aspects of the food system: Agricultural systems Environmental, social, and economic sustainability of food production with a changing climate Food and health Food security Policy development at federal, state, and local levels Understanding the complex dynamics of a global food systems The food systems curriculum provides students with a broad foundational knowledge about the food system that includes environmental, social, and economic sustainability of food production. This knowledge is presented within the context of a changing climate, agricultural systems, food, health, and nutrition, food security, policy development at federal, state, and local levels, and an understanding of the complex dynamics of a global food system. In addition, students declare a concentration with a focus on natural or social science. Students also complete six credits of internship or research, providing an opportunity to apply what they learn, as well as prepare for a career in food systems. Food Systems majors will complete 6 credits of internship or research as part of the curriculum. Internships Vermont is nationally recognized for its work in the food systems, which provides countless opportunities for students in Food Systems to gain valuable hands-on experience with a mentor, as well as learning through community partnerships in the classroom. You may decide to work on a farm, learn about food safety, study sustainability with a food producer, work with a non-profit to do nutrition education, or engage in food policy and community development. As broad as our food system is, so are the opportunities to find your niche and area of interest. Research CALS students are eligible to participate in the Distinguished Undergraduate Research program, regardless of major. This is an opportunity to work with a faculty member to conduct research in a specific area of food systems. Often students who participate in research are preparing for graduate college, including medical or veterinary school. Food systems students are encouraged to consider research as part of their undergraduate studies. Examples of recent food systems related research include: Evaluation of the Efficacy of Natural Resistance in 'Honeycrisp' to Reduce Fungicide Applications for Venturia inequalis (Cooke) Wint. The Impact of Changes in Beverage Options on Beverage Choice, Calorie and Added Sugars Consumption on a University Campus What do Children Select from a School Salad Bar? A Descriptive Study Using Digital Imaging to Assess Children’s Food Selections Understanding multifunctional agriculture in New England-levels of participation, farm operators' demographics, and farm operators' satisfaction
