The increasing prevalence of chronic disease and obesity worldwide has added urgency to the need for qualified researchers trained in understanding the complex interaction of biology, environment, and personal behavior, as well as skilled in the development of interventions to potentially attenuate the rapidly rising rates of obesity and chronic diseases, such as diabetes in both adults and children.

The program prepares scholars to conduct research on the critical issues related to:

  • Determinants of health behaviors related to nutrition and to physical activity;
  • Relationships among food- and nutrition-related behaviors and health outcomes using techniques of behavioral epidemiology;
  • Design and implementation of theory-based behavioral nutrition and physical activity interventions
  • Methodological considerations in the design and evaluation of interventions.

There are three specializations:

  • Behavioral Nutrition
  • Nutritional Epidemiology
  • Nutrition and Physical Activity

The graduates from this program will be leaders who will assume professorial and research roles in universities and colleges within departments of nutrition epidemiology, foods and nutrition, and physical activity, as well as assume research roles in centers for research on behavioral aspects of obesity, chronic disease prevention, and health promotion. Thus, the program aims to prepare researchers with basic and applied behavioral skills within an educational context.

Program of Study

The general requirements for the Doctor of Philosophy include a minimum of 75 graduate credits, of which at least 45 must be taken under Teachers College registration.

For the Ph.D., the total classroom course requirement is 45-51 credits, including prior master’s degree work and 24-30 credits (advanced topical seminars, research seminar and dissertation advisement) devoted to research-related courses and activities. Students will also be expected to pass a certification examination and an advanced seminar and to write a dissertation.

Students will be expected to take courses in the following categories:

  • Core courses: 33 points
  • Courses to develop depth within each specialization: 15-21 points
  • Research preparation: 21-27 points

The specific courses selected will depend on the student’s particular background, interests and goals. In consultation with a faculty advisor, students should develop a program plan early in their course of study to provide a rational basis for their course selection.
