Public Health Nutrition

Course Description

Public health nutrition is the science and art of preventing disease, prolonging life and promoting health through the medium of nutrition. Public Health Nutritionists develop, implement and evaluate nutrition policies and programmes, generating the evidence base and applying scientific knowledge to ensure understanding of the impact of food and diet on health and well-being of people and communities, and improving the diet, nutrition and health of people and communities around the world.

The MSc in Public Health Nutrition programme consists of seven taught modules and a research project.

Each taught module involves attendance at a four or three day course (9.00 am to 5.00 pm) followed by a period of campus or home-based learning and the submission of a 4,000-word written assignment, or its equivalent (eg. poster presentation).
