Promote and improve healthy food choices by working with and educating the community.
This course is designed to equip you with the theoretical and practical skills required for a career in public health nutrition. You will learn how to identify the health and nutritional needs of individuals, groups and communities, develop people’s skills and knowledge in health and nutrition, advocate for policies and laws that support healthy choices and plan, implement and evaluate health promotion and public health nutrition activities.
In your first year, you will learn the foundations of health promotion and nutrition, and study interprofessional core units with students from other health disciplines.
In your second, third and fourth years you will specialise in health promotion and nutrition. You will also undertake an on-campus health promotion campaign, provide a school-based nutrition education session and a 100-hour professional public health nutrition placement in a public health/health promotion organisation.
High achieving students may complete an additional honours year enabling them to undertake their own significant research project.
