Course Description

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 at Monash 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, functional foods, sports nutrition and exercise science, body composition, and hunger and satiety. The challenges associated with the increase in chronic disease in our society will feature prominently.

Your knowledge will be enriched through extensive practical study. You'll learn how to assess dietary intake, experiment with the composition and chemistry of different foods, and gain awareness of the complex regulatory requirements relating to food. You may focus on nutrition research, public-health nutrition or get out into the field with a food-industry placement.
