Turn your passion into your profession with nutrition at Massey

Massey’s MSc (Human Nutrition) will give you the knowledge and experience you need to interpret and contribute to current issues in human nutrition.

Find out more about the Master of Science parent structure.

WHAT IS IT LIKE?

Massey’s MSc (Human Nutrition) will give you in-depth knowledge and understanding of the latest issues in the field of human nutrition. 

You’ll study nutrition principles in four core courses, then choose areas of interest for remaining courses, or a special topic, tailored to your requirements.

Develop your research skills

You’ll develop your scientific research skills to an advanced level with a high-quality, student-led research project under the supervision of experienced and dedicated staff. You’ll investigate the links between diet and health, and the factors affecting them, by evaluating the underlying research and nutritional mechanisms.

You choose how and where

Your research project can be completed in the nutrition research facilities on our campuses, in the community or in your workplace. Research projects may be part of existing research within the University, or designed specifically for your needs and interests. Your MSc (HumNutr) can have a particular focus, such as public health nutrition, sports nutrition or nutritional physiology.

Flexible study options to suit you

Study hours are flexible to fit in with your busy life, with courses offered in block mode. You can study full-time or part-time, combining study with your work and other commitments. 

Teaching is a mixture of self-directed learning (supported by the Stream virtual classroom environment) and block courses (usually two eight-hour block courses for core courses and two four-hour, half-day block courses for elective courses). The block courses are video-linked and you can attend in Palmerston North or Auckland, regardless of where the course is hosted. 

If you don’t have a science or nutrition background, you can take a conversion course, such as the graduate certificate or graduate diploma, to transition to postgraduate study. If you have postgraduate qualifications in nutrition or dietetics, you may be eligible to enrol in an MSc(HumNutr) by thesis or a PhD.

Careers

With internationally marketable skills, you’ll be able to select from a wide range of career opportunities as a human nutrition postgraduate, including:

  • Health promotion/public health (such as District Health Boards, Ministry of Health, NZ Heart Foundation)
  • Sport and exercise nutrition (such as elite and recreational sports teams, fitness industry)
  • Research in universities and Crown Research Institutes (like AgResearch, Plant & Food Research)
  • Teaching in secondary and tertiary educational institutions
  • Consultancy in industry (for example, for food companies and industry), corporate health and wellness and in private practice
  • Government adviser on policy, education or nutrition
  • Media (writing publications, television, marketing)
  • International relief work
  • Medical nutritional companies (nutrition advisor, nutritional representative)
