Curtin University

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00301J

This double degree concurrently develops expertise in the areas of nutrition and health promotion. With increasing emphasis being placed on preventing disease using sound nutrition, this combination of skills is ideal for positions where health promotion skills are frequently required and are considered highly desirable, such as government health departments and other agencies involved with the prevention of chronic disease. It is particularly relevant for jobs in government health departments and in community agencies involved with health related areas such as alcohol and other drugs, injury control, disease control, heart disease prevention, cancer control, road safety, research, sponsorship and community development and capacity building.
