If you have an interest in health and nutrition and the ability to communicate with people, an exciting career is open to you in nutrition and dietetics – the science of how the food we eat affects our lives. The study of nutrition and dietetics focuses on the application of food and nutrition science in relation to the treatment and prevention of diet-related diseases. Students gain a range of skills in the health sciences (eg chemistry, anatomy, physiology, biochemistry) before completing more advanced study of nutrition and dietetics. You’ll learn through extensive hands-on experience in state-of-the-art facilities, including a purpose-built teaching kitchen and a nutrition clinic in the Griffith Health Centre. Graduates can apply knowledge of nutrition to professional practice in the areas of medical nutrition therapy, food service management, and community and public health nutrition. For more course information, visit Bachelor of Nutrition and Dietetics at GU.
