This science-based course provides you with high-level communication and teamwork skills.
Your first year will be interprofessional and taken with other health sciences students.
Your second year builds on this foundation and you will study sciences such as biochemistry and physiology in order to understand how the human body uses nutrients from foods to sustain life. Off-campus field trips will also help you experience food and nutrition issues in real-life settings.
In the second year of the course you will choose between two streams: Nutrition and Food Science.
The Nutrition stream further develops your understanding of the evidence of associations between diet and health outcomes, and you will explore the social and cultural influences that impact dietary decisions within the population.
You will also conduct a nutrition research project. Graduate nutritionists typically undertake further study to specialise in a professional area, including dietetics, research, food science and technology, health promotion or teaching.
