    The Department of Nutrition and Food Science, a division of the College of Human Sciences, offers graduate study leading to a Master of Science degree with emphasis in hotel and restaurant management (HRMT).

    The Program of Study for this non-thesis option in HRMT is consistent with the traditional campus-based program. The non-thesis option will require a written and oral comprehensive examination. In lieu of a thesis, an industry-based research project approved by the student's committee will be required. The student will receive four credits under NUFS 7986 (Non-thesis Research) for work on the project. After completion, the project will be written in a scholarly manner and presented to the committee. Typically, the non-thesis option will require one day on campus. Students electing the thesis option will be required to spend one semester (15-weeks) of residency at the university in addition to completion of a minimum of four credits under NUFS (Research and Thesis) directed by the student's committee. All courses included in the Program of Study are regular courses currently being offered on the Auburn University campus.

    Each course within the program will be delivered to students off campus via several delivery modes. Initially, courses will be comprised of video tape recordings of actual classes on campus offered in the same quarter. Tapes of each class session will be immediately duplicated and mailed within 48 hours to off campus students registered for the courses. Students will be required to view the tapes shortly after receiving them in order to stay abreast of the course at roughly the same pace as the on campus students. Students will be allowed to retain the course tapes until the final examination. At the completion of the course students will be required to return the tapes. The tapes at all times remain the property of Auburn University. The tapes can neither be duplicated nor can they be retained beyond the duration of the course.
    Prior to taking a course examination, students will be required to identify an appropriate academic administrator from the Distance Learning Office's approved list. Examinations will be mailed directly to the approved proctor along with detailed instructions concerning the examination procedure. Once the student completes the examination, it will be handed directly to the proctor, immediately sealed in an envelope, and mailed to the Distance Learning Office. The proctor and the student will affirm in writing that the detailed examination grading procedures were followed appropriately. Examinations will then be handled as are the assignments for the grading process. Students will be expected to take examinations within five working days of the date the examination is given on campus.

    Twelve students may be in the program at one time. However, capacity is subject to change. Students may be accepted into the program each semester. Three semesters exist per year.
    Video tape viewing equipment, access to Internet and Email capabilities
    The Distance Learning Office serves as the primary service office for the students. It will receive assignments from the students, log them in, and pass them on to the faculty for grading. Once the graded assignments are returned from the faculty member, they will again be logged in as graded and returned to the student. The Distance Learning Office will address concerns and provide information for students who have questions about the disposition of their assignments or course materials. Academic questions will be referred to the appropriate faculty member or department administrator. Library and Bookstore services are available online. Students can receive assistance from the Distance Learning Office from the web site.
    Departmental assistantships (teaching and research) are competitive and vary in number and type from year to year. Out-of-state tuition fees are waived for students receiving one-semester (or more) assistantships.

    Assistantships are awarded on a competitive basis and require superior academic performance. Other types of part-time positions with various research projects may be available on a short-term basis.
