The Master of Nutrition Science program helps students develop the set of skills necessary to occupy positions in food production plans and work in quality assurance, product development, microbiology and chemical analysis as well as roles within consulting laboratories, government organizations and regulatory bodies. The Master of Nutrition Science program is offered online via distance learning. After evaluating both academic record and life experience, AIU staff working in conjunction with Faculty and Academic Advisors will assist students in setting up a custom-made program, designed on an individual basis. This flexibility to meet student needs is seldom found in other distance learning programs. Our online program does not require all students to take the same subjects/courses, use the same books, or learning materials. Instead, the online Master of Nutrition Science curriculum is designed individually by the student and academic advisor. It specifically addresses strengths and weaknesses with respect to market opportunities in the student’s major and intended field of work. Understanding that industry and geographic factors should influence the content of the curriculum instead of a standardized one-fits-all design is the hallmark of AIU’s unique approach to adult education. This philosophy addresses the dynamic and constantly changing environment of working professionals by helping adult students in reaching their professional and personal goals within the scope of the degree program.

AIU has developed a protocol to quantify and qualify an individual’s professional background, as well as, their academic credentials, and grant academic credit to qualified students commensurate with their true level of knowledge. Although AIU’s criteria for granting a particular degree is generally the same as the broad majority of institutions, our practice of granting academic credit for “Life Experience” is just recently gaining acceptance in the academic community.
At AIU the development of course and curricula is a collaborative activity, conducted between the student and the Academic Advisor. Each student’s curricula is unique, and developed as a result of the mutual efforts of the student, the academic staff and the academic advisor. The supervising dean of academic advisors holds a doctorate degree in education with specialty in course and curricula design. The student’s academic advisor works directly with the supervising dean in establishing the students curriculum.
