Course content

This online MSc Public Health Nutrition course provides teaching and learning around the role of food and nutrition in health and disease, and how this knowledge can be applied to improve public health.

We will support you to develop the professional skills required for a successful career in the field – working to improve the diet and nutritional status of individuals, communities and populations with the aim of improving health and wellbeing, and reducing the burden of disease.

Food and nutrition policies for improving health and preventing chronic disease are required worldwide. Undernutrition and obesity are global public health problems, and food security and sustainable diets are of increasing importance as we adapt to feed a growing population whilst mitigating the effects of climate change on food production.
