    Summary

    In our full time three year programme you will study theory and develop the practical skills needed for working in sports, health and wellness sectors.

    Nutrition is a science with real-life applications, providing a range of transferable skills and leading to a variety of careers. Nutrition involves the study of nutrients in food, how the body absorbs and uses these nutrients for growth and maintenance, and the relationship between diet, health and disease.

    Nutrition is increasingly relevant in today's society due to its impact on the health of individuals, communities and populations. This specialisation will provide you with expertise in nutrition, and an awareness of what influences the nutrition of individuals and groups in New Zealand and globally.

    As people are starting to take more responsibility for their own health to prevent illness, they are faced with a confusing range of often conflicting nutrition information. This programme will equip you with the ability to identify good sources of nutrition information in an ever-changing environment to empower people to make healthier food choices and make a difference in the lives of individuals and communities.

    A sample of areas covered within the degree includes:

    • Metabolic processes and how nutrients in food affect the human body
    • Application of nutrition science to enhance the health of community groups
    • Effects of major nutrition-related factors on non-communicable diseases that impact on the health of developed nations
    • Identification of reliable sources of up-to-date nutritional information
    • Communication of nutrition principles in a range of contexts using awareness of psychological, cultural and environmental influences on eating behaviour
    • The use of genetics, physiology, culture, environment and social issues to assist in the management of body composition and nutrition choices
    • Work placements with nutrition education programmes, health promotion organisations (governmental and non-governmental), nutrition consultancies, community initiatives, workplace wellbeing programmes and school holiday programmes.
