RIT announces plans for a new school, degree programs devoted to health and nutrition
Date:3/7/2014

the new school will similarly help further the field of health and nutrition through practical solutions to health challenges."

The Wegmans School of Health and Nutrition will add new degree programs and will research and address critical health issues, such as high blood pressure, cigarette smoking, high cholesterol, and the host of problems associated with obesity.

What will make the school unique, RIT leaders said, will be:

  • A structure that is highly collaborative and interdisciplinary, bringing together the best of the university's technological, creative and humanities disciplines to develop effective programs.

  • A focus that prioritizes the pursuit of new knowledge through highly applied research initiatives.

  • A commitment to producing graduates who are well prepared to provide leadership in health and wellness.

  • A connection to industry that will ensure the school is addressing the greatest priorities, whether program development, workforce development or new knowledge, to drive productivity and profitability.

The new school launches immediately with nearly 100 undergraduates already enrolled in a pre-existing minor in exercise management and a BS in nutrition management, the latter of which has 410 alumni. It will join the college's five other programs, which include biomedical sciences, diagnostic medical sonography, medical illustration, physician assistant, health system administration, as well as the MFA program in medical illustration.

Contingent upon state approval, the Wegmans School of Health and Nutrition will add a master's degree in health and wellness, a bachelor's in exercise science and a doctoral program in applied nutrition.

The master's program in health and wellness will focus on teaching students to integrate wellness into primary medical care and health-enhancement programs designed for corporate or community-based initiatives
