Become a leader in exercise and sports nutrition

A TWU student gains hands-on experience in exercise and sports nutrition and studies exercise science in a lab setting.

Earn your Master’s degree in Exercise and Sports Nutrition (ESN) at TWU. Explore research and study opportunities that allow you to determine how diet and exercise impact health and athletic performance.

Build your sports nutrition and research skills in a variety of settings, including the classroom, health-related settings, and high school, university and professional athletic teams.

*Individual requirements may vary.

The MS in Exercise and Sports Nutrition along with the dietetic internship prepares graduates to take the national Registration Examination for Dietitians and apply for a license to practice through the Texas State Board of Examiners of Dietitians. Licensing of dietitians in Texas is voluntary. If you are a resident of another state, contact our department to determine whether our program fulfills requirements to apply for licensure in your home state.
