Now more than ever, there’s an awareness of how our food choices impact our health. There is a need for nutritionists who can explain the science underpinning the relationship between diet and disease to the general public. That's why studying a Bachelor of Nutrition Science is such a healthy investment.

As a nutrition student, you'll examine the broad scope of food in society and gain in-depth knowledge of nutritional and biomedical science from specialists in dietary intake and metabolism, public health nutrition, sports nutrition and exercise science, body composition, and hunger and satiety. 

Your theoretical knowledge will be enriched through hands-on, practical study in our innovative Be Active Sleep Eat (BASE) facility equipped with an industrial kitchen, sleep lab and body composition suite. You’ll learn how to assess dietary intake, experiment with food chemistry and composition, and how to understand the complex regulatory requirements relating to food labelling.


With a Nutrition Science program at Monash University , our graduates can explore a variety of rewarding careers and make a difference to health. You go into roles in the food industry - as a nutrition adviser, food technologist or product developer. Or if people are your passion, you can apply your nutrition knowledge in a public health setting - working in health promotion, community development, policy, regulation or communication. With further graduate study, you can qualify as a dietitian.
