NUTR 335: Senior Clinical Rotations
Required of senior standing students enrolled in the Combined Masters Degree/Dietetic Internship program. The grading basis for this course is Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory. Prerequisites: Graduate standing or instructor consent.
Days and times to be arranged with the instructor.
NUTR 236: Practicum in Bioresearch Techniques
Biochemical and Molecular Nutrition students must enroll in one practicum in bioresearch techniques. Students who anticipate a career in basic nutritional sciences require extensive laboratory training. Practicums in bioresearch techniques, established as a single, 1.0 credit course, will provide students with an understanding of critical experimental evaluation as well as hands-on experience in essential techniques of modern biology. In the practicum, students will answer a specific biologic question through experimentation. Faculty in participating laboratories will be responsible for providing an overview of the biologic interest of the laboratory, overseeing the development of a specific, defined project, teaching the theory of specific techniques to be employed, and training the students in the application of these techniques. Students will be evaluated through a written report and oral presentation in a laboratory meeting-type setting. Prerequisites: Graduate standing or instructor consent.
NUTR 298: Summer Internship
This course is for AF&E, FPAN, and Nutrition Communication students completing their Internship degree requirement during the Summer 2015 semester.
NUTR 202-ONL: Principles of Nutrition Science - Online Only
This course presents the fundamental scientific principles of human nutrition. Students will become familiar with food sources; recommended intake levels; biochemical role; mode of absorption, transport, excretion; deficiency/toxicity symptoms, and potential major public health problems for each macro- and micronutrient. The student goals for this course are: 1.) to describe the components of a healthy diet, 2.) understand the major nutrition problems that affect individuals and populations from conception and throughout the life cycle, and 3.) understand the scientific basis for nutritional recommendations brought before the scientific and lay communities. Prerequisites: Students are required to have taken a one semester college-level course in either human biology, chemistry, or physiology (preferred, Tufts offers an online Physiology course every summer).
Students are not required to attend classes, but must have access to a reliable computer and Internet connection to download prerecorded lectures and course materials.
To register for this class, please contact the Office of Student Affairs at (617) 636-3777.
