Contribute to a more equitable world through better food production and supply, with a Bachelor of Human Nutrition.

This health-focused degree gives you a solid foundation in nutrition, food, and related science subjects.

The Bachelor of Human Nutrition commences with a broad discipline base of 8 core units in nutrition, food and related sciences. In your second and third year you'll progress to more targeted study, acquiring further specialist knowledge and skills, by choosing a specialisation from the following:

  • Biomedical Nutrition (minor)
  • Public Health Nutrition (minor)
  • Exercise and Nutrition (minor).

This will allow you to broaden and enrich your learning, diversifying employment opportunities, and enabling you to successfully compete in professional settings within the community nutrition and public health sector and/or pursue postgraduate study.
