Undergraduate study – human nutrition

Nutrition is becoming one of the key issues facing society. Nutrition-related health problems are a major cause of morbidity and mortality, and optimal nutrition may enhance performance and wellbeing. Policy makers are interested in these issues. People are starting to take more responsibility for their own health, and they want to know how lifestyle adjustments can prevent health problems instead of relying on costly medical intervention after problems have occurred.

The Bachelor of Science (Human Nutrition) covers many disciplines, including nutrition, physiology, biochemistry, microbiology, behavioural sciences, public health and sport and exercise. Nutrition graduates have a variety of career choices and face a rising demand for their expertise, including work in public health areas, private practice, industry, research and international organisations.
