The nutritional health both of Australians and the rest of the world is problematic. With increasing prevalence of lifestyle-related diseases and an ageing population it is envisaged that there will be a growing burden on society and the health care system in the years ahead. Consequently, there is demand for nutrition professionals to assist in the prevention and management of these issues. Graduates of the Bachelor of Human Nutrition will be suitably qualified to work as nutritionists to address the future health needs in Australia and internationally in a variety of settings, including health promotion, community health, research, the food industry and the fitness/recreation industry.


The degree will offer students the opportunity to study nutritional, health and medical sciences with the aim of educating professionals who are able to apply scientific knowledge and skills in nutrition and human sciences to promote health and prevent illness in communities. The first two years of the degree include biochemistry, physiology, general nutrition and indigenous health topics. Year 3 focuses on nutrition topics and social health science topics.
