This course brings together the science of nutrition and the innovation of business to expand student’s horizons beyond the more traditional approaches to public health nutrition. It will enhance your public health and nutrition knowledge and skills.
The increase in non communicable diseases across the globe, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity and malnutrition is inextricably linked to poor diet. This has led to an increasing demand for graduates who have an in-depth knowledge of the impact of dietary intake on the risk factors of disease, as well as the ability to apply this knowledge through education and influencing policy to improve the population’s health.
If you choose this course you will benefit from:
a focus on the science of nutrition and public health policy and practice;
innovative and creative approaches to tackling public health nutrition issues, including a focus on business and media;
a diverse teaching team including a range of public health nutrition academic experts who are committed to providing a range of excellent teaching and learning experiences;
access to the broad research interests of the teaching team, which include food poverty, obesogenic environments, behaviour change and whole-person care including spirituality;
opportunities to apply for work experience in public health nutrition.
On successful completion of the course you will be able to work in a range of careers such as public health; government and non-government organisations; social enterprises; freelance nutrition and the food industry.
