Future Education Model (FEM) Graduate Program Update
Application Deadline Extended
The program will continue accepting applications on a rolling basis through the Post-Match period until we fill our first class (to begin May 13, 2019).
The accredited FEM program is the Experiential Track of the Master of Professional Studies (MPS) in Nutritional Sciences, which is a graduate degree program of the Department of Nutritional Sciences offered via Penn State’s World Campus. This is a 24-month program (39 credit minimum) that integrates online graduate coursework with 3 semesters of in-residence supervised experiential learning at either University Park, PA or Hershey, PA (and surrounding areas). Students can indicate preference for location upon admission. Upon graduation students are eligible to sit for the RDN exam. No verification statement required to apply. GRE scores are required (unless students meet waiver eligibility). Applicants will apply directly through the Penn State Graduate School online application, and interviews will be conducted with eligible applicants.
