New York Chiropractic College (NYCC) has announced a new fast-tracked option to its online Master of Science in Applied Clinical Nutrition (MSACN) program, allowing students to earn their graduate degree in just 16 months.

NYCC's totally online MSACN program is structured to be flexible and accommodate the busy lifestyles and schedules of students and healthcare professionals. The new accelerated program allows students to enroll in nine credits each trimester and complete their master's degree in just 16 months. Students can also earn their M.S. via a 24-month schedule.

"We have developed these changes to enhance student options while maintaining our commitment to providing a high-quality, cutting-edge whole-foods nutrition program," said Dr. Peter Nickless, director of the MSACN program.

New courses have also been added to this 36-credit program. Students can now choose from the following elective course options: Behavioral Nutrition, Clinical Sports Nutrition, and Introduction to Clinical Practice -- the latter in which students will gain first-hand experience with virtual patients. While two new classes, Personalized Nutrition and the Microbiome and Gastrointestinal Health, and Genomics have been added to the program's core curriculum.

Always Evidenced-Informed, Now Even More Options

Dean of the School of Health Sciences and Education Dr. Jean-Nicolas Poirier said the new coursework and curricular schedule provide up-to-date, clinically relevant information in a student-centered approach. "The influence of nutrition research on health promotion continues to evolve at a rapid pace. The M.S. in Applied Clinical Nutrition program at NYCC remains at the forefront of its field by translating the research and applying it in a clinical context focused on individual health," he noted.

NYCC's online master's degree program in nutrition trains highly-qualified healthcare professionals in the field of human nutrition, emphasizing a science-based, whole-foods approach to the prevention of disease, the achievement of optimal performance, and the maintenance of health.
