Human Nutrition

      Overview

      How many health stars do you look for when buying food? What do you wish you could change about the health and nutrition of our society?

      Human nutrition involves the science of food production and processing, the nutrient composition of foods, the interaction of nutrients with our biochemical and physiological make-up, and the impact of diet on health and disease.

      After studying a major in Human Nutrition, you’ll be well-placed to apply for a graduate degree in dietetics, to qualify you as a dietitian.

      Studying human nutrition is also a great first step towards careers in food manufacturing, public health or food policy. Or, with further study, you could pursue a career in teaching health or science.

      Take this major together with a track of subjects in a related area, and you’ll be eligible for registration as a Nutritionist with the Nutrition Society of Australia.

      You can study this major in the Bachelor of Biomedicine or Bachelor of Science
