About

The BSc Food, Nutrition and Human Health offered at the Robert Gordon University (Hons) is the scientific study of nutrients and other substances in food, how they are used in the body, and the relationship between diet, health and disease. 

Overview

At the Robert Gordon University studying the BSc Food, Nutrition and Human Health you will have the opportunity to diversify into many different areas such as developing food and nutrition policy; food product reformulation or development; researching nutritional approaches to preventing, managing or treating disease; or training community workers to support individuals and groups to develop cooking skills. You can tailor your degree to your own specific interests so that you can specialise in the area of nutrition that interests you most, supporting you to bring about positive change.

As a Nutritionist, you would make a positive difference in a wide variety of fields which include public health, the food industry, sports nutrition, and nutritional research.

Job Prospects

The nutrition sector has a wide variety of careers and is a constantly expanding field. Nutritionists mostly work in non-clinical settings and may work in the food industry (from primary production through product development to the retail chains), public health nutrition and health promotion (e.g. NHS public health departments or freelance as consultants), and government and non-government organisations (NGOs). 

Nutritionists also work in the rapidly expanding health and fitness industries to promote health and improve performance, or work with large businesses to promote the health and wellbeing of their employees through health and lifestyle assessments and delivery of educational seminars. Others choose to pursue a career in academia which may include nutrition research (lab-based and human), or home economics teaching.
