Public health nutrition is a new and interesting subject area that concentrates on achieving a sound knowledge in nutrition and public health, providing participants with the expertise to work in a variety of settings to promote nutrition for the benefit of public health. A public health nutritionist influences food selection and eating behaviour of a population, based on research and national dietary guidelines. Public health nutritionists can expect to find themselves in advisory and policy/advocacy roles as well as engaged in research in the UK and internationally.

This course will allow graduates of biological sciences to build on their knowledge, and aims to promote the critical appraisal of the theory and application of public health nutrition, and nutrition policy planning and practice, to improve the health of the population through nutrition.

Teaching, learning and assessment

The emphasis is on independent problem-based learning where your previous knowledge and skills are used to develop an understanding in the new subject areas you will be studying. The course is taught using a variety of interactive learning methods including lectures, tutorials,  seminars, workshops, laboratories, group work, role-play and interactive computer sessions. Development of interpersonal skills and professional skills and attitudes are also a major focus of the learning and teaching programme.  Learning activities are guided using web based programmes. The course is modular and each module is assessed mainly by course work, except for one examination in Food and Nutrition. Normally, there are approximately 12 students on this course but some modules are shared with the MSc Dietetics which can result in a class of no more than 24 students. These small class sizes ensure that students receive excellent support and benefit from sharing their experiences with classmates.

Teaching hours and attendance

Each module which you study on campus will require you to attend classes and carry out independent work. It is estimated that each module will require 150 hours of your time. Your attendance requirements at QMU will depend on which module you are studying and whether you are studying full or part-time.
