Course summary

Human Nutrition is the scientific study of the foods we eat, the nutrients in foods, the fate of the nutrients when they are eaten and the effects of diet on health and well being. As a graduate nutritionist, you will have the skills to elicit, disseminate, and apply knowledge drawn from the relevant sciences to promote an understanding of the effects of diet on human health and well-being. This master's course is a 12 month full-time intensive programme. The programme will provide students with a broad knowledge and understanding of human nutrition, developing scientific skills to master's level. Two taught semesters provide study in core modules in human nutrition. The human nutrition research project is an integral part of this programme where students undertake an independent research project under close supervision.

You will study modules in Biochemical and Molecular Approaches to Nutrition, Applied Nutrition, Nutritional Assessment Recommendations and Requirements, Research Methods and Biostatistics, Diet and Disease, Public Health and Nutrition Behaviour, Food Science & Microbiology. Ulster University is a leading centre for internationally recognised teaching and research in the field of nutrition. You will be taught by a dynamic expert of researchers, registered nutritionists, scientists and clinical practitioners.

The academic content of the programme, together with the experience gained from the Masters research project, leads to excellent employment opportunities within industry, nutrition research, health promotion, public health, personalised nutrition ie in the areas of metabolomics, nutrigenomics or in nutrition overseas. Many of our graduates choose to pursue higher research degrees (PhD) or to pursue further taught study in the area of human nutrition, dietetics, sports nutrition or to complete a PGCE and become teachers of science, home economics or biology at both this University or at other institutions of higher education and research.
