TTU Board Closer to New Ag, Nutrition Masters Programs

Tennessee Tech has moved one step closer to implementing new masters programs in agriculture and nutrition.

TTU’s Board of Trustees voted Thursday to approve approved letters that will go to the Tennessee Higher Education Commission to develop the sustainable agriculture and community health and nutrition programs.

According to a press release from the University, the Masters in Community Health and Nutrition will provide students the opportunity to provide “high-quality nutrition services to a variety of populations.”

President Phil Oldham noted in the release that the new programs will align with the school’s new Rural Reimagined initiative, focused on helping underserved communities across the Upper Cumberland and the rest of the state.
