Summary... header image

Public Health Nutrition involves the promotion of good health through nutrition and the primary prevention of nutrition related illness in the population. It focuses on the application of food and nutrition knowledge, policy, and research to improving the optimum nutritional health of the whole population and high risk or vulnerable subgroups within the population.

This public health nutrition degree will have an international perspective and will examine how global, national and local community programs might be designed to improve the nutritional status of the population as a whole and those at particular risk. The programme is designed to provide an integrated training in the science of nutrition and its applications to human health and wellbeing both at the individual and community level.

The study of nutrition draws on a range of subjects including the basic sciences, biochemistry, cell and molecular biology, immunology, microbiology and physiology. Competence will be developed based on theoretical knowledge, the application of the core sciences to human nutrition, the development of scientific and analytical skills and the integration of theory and practice.
