Overview

This Joint Honours degree will provide you with an extensive knowledge of nutritional principles, alongside a critical interpretation of people’s psychological behaviour.

The Human Nutrition programme offers you the opportunity to explore the connections between food constituents, diet and health, with an emphasis on practical experience and real life scenarios. You will look in detail at the functions of nutrients and other bioactive compounds.

From forensic or clinical psychology to counselling or business psychology, the Psychology course offers flexibility to allow you to specialise, whilst still gaining a more generalised overview of the subject.

Career opportunities

Nutritionists who can look at evidence and make measured and reasoned judgements are required in scientific and health fields, but also in the media, as nutritional journalists and presenters; in retailing, as managers of health food shops and as advisors in the larger supermarkets; and in finance, to ensure there is a balanced view relating to new food technology and that any risks are neither under or over-stated. Many other openings are also available in such areas as: education (healthy school food programme), food production (advisors to growers and animal husbandry), and food provision (advisors or trainers of catering staff).

A degree with Psychology is highly favoured by employers, giving you an excellent advantage in the job market. Previous graduates have gone into roles as diverse as management, human resources, teaching, and healthcare or art therapy. During your studies with us you will learn and develop a broad range of transferable skills. An important part of this learning process is the ability to reflect upon your own experiences; an aspect of practice engaged in by all professional psychologists.
