March 2, 2023

The Allied Health to Master of Science Nutrition and Human Performance (MSNHP) 3+2 program allows students to earn their Bachelor of Science in Allied Health and Master of Science in Nutrition and Human Performance in five years.

This opportunity is perfect for students with a passion for health who want to graduate as a leader in their field. The additional master’s degree allows for a higher level of expertise upon entering the workforce.

Through this program, students will have an in-depth understanding of biomechanics, functional anatomy, and movement science, with a specialized focus on the evidence-based foundations of nutrition and human performance.

Since its inception, students with the Allied Health undergraduate degree expressed interest in the MSNHP program. In response, Assistant Professor of Health and Movement Science Melanie Mason DAT, LAT, ATC, CES, PES, in partnership with Robert Davidson Ph.D., the director of the MSNHP program, worked tirelessly to develop the Allied Health and MSNHP 3+2 program.

“At Graceland, we’re always striving to meet the growing needs of our students by offering programs like this that allow them an advance in less time in a field they are excited about,” said Mason.

From coaching to physical therapy, the master’s in nutrition and human performance gives students an edge in terms of employment, providing additional knowledge to offer their clients. Students interested in professional school will have the opportunity to have published work, hands-on experience, and a proven track record that they can thrive in a terminal degree program.

“I think this 3+2 program is one of the best values in the nation regarding academics, price point, and mentorship. We are so excited about what we have created here,” said Davidson.
