Course content

The part that nutrition plays in public health has long been recognised. This is reflected in the growing provision of locally-based food and lifestyle projects intended to prevent obesity and other diet-related diseases, and designed to address inequalities in health.
These challenges have led to a growing demand for trained public health nutritionists. This course will give you the specialist scientific knowledge and practical skills you need to meet those challenges. Training in statistics, epidemiology, research methods, nutritional assessment, and health promotion and behaviour change will enhance your professional skills, employability and development as a public health professional.
