Graduate Programs

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the closure of some academic testing sites, the School of Human Ecology at Louisiana Tech University will temporarily waive the GRE requirements for the applications to the Master of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics for the Summer and Fall 2020 terms. For those requesting a GRE waiver, a minimum undergraduate GPA of 3.0 will be required prior to consideration of the applications.  The amended policy will remain in effect through August 1, 2020.

Please contact Dr. Ethel Jones at with questions.

Our graduate programs in nutrition and dietetics use outcome-based research and evidence-based practice to understand the relationship between food intake and health outcomes at the individual, family, and community levels. They provide the education, research, and service to impact the nutritional well-being of individuals, families, consumers, and communities. This graduate degree includes both thesis and non-thesis options.


Graduate Certificate

Louisiana Tech University also offers a graduate certificate in dietetics designed to provide future registered dietitian nutritionists with the skills to participate in research and effective practice. Interns who complete the required 15 hours in graduate course work will earn the certificate.

Coursework toward this certificate can be applied toward the Master of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics.
