Welcome to NEP

Dr. Chris HardinI am pleased to describe the long-standing successful educational and research programs in the department and share with you the recent accomplishments of our department and some exciting things on the horizon.

The Nutrition & Exercise Physiology Department is the only department on campus that spans three colleges (School of Medicine, College of Human Environmental Sciences, and College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources). This unique configuration poises and challenges us to be a model of interdisciplinary research and education on campus.

Our department has a long tradition of educational excellence at the undergraduate and graduate level. We have three outstanding undergraduate programs (Dietetics, Nutritional Sciences, and Nutrition and Fitness) and two outstanding graduate programs (Nutritional Sciences and Exercise Physiology), both offering MS and PhD degrees.
