Master of Science in Nutrition and Nutrigenomics - Curriculum

Competency Based Education

The MSNGx program is a Future Education Model competency-based education (CBE) program. This program is focused on student mastery of the competencies and performance indicators set forth by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND). ACEND states that “One of the advantages of CBE is that it fosters work readiness. In the Future Education Model Accreditation Standards, the curriculum is guided with the competencies and their respective performance indicators, which are clearly defined based on the desired behaviors and job skills targeted.” Competency based programs focus on students progress toward achieving required competencies rather than hours as in traditional time-based programs. CBE encourages students to drive their education progression. Faculty therefore become facilitators of student-led learning.
