Course Summary

This course will build the experience you gained from a related undergraduate degree and will provide you with the option to specialise in either public health nutrition or sports nutrition. Accredited by the Association for Nutrition (AfN), this master’s course will help you to develop advanced practical experience in your approach to research and practice in nutrition. By becoming an effective learner and practitioner with cross-functional skills, you’ll be well prepared for a future career in public health or sports nutrition. The course team on our Human Nutrition (Public Health/Sports) MSc has a wide range of expertise ranging from whole body metabolic research, epidemiology and dietary assessment to clinical research and nutrition policy. These interests are reflected in the subjects you’ll study on the course.

On completion of the course, you will be eligible to become a registrant with the AfN as an associate nutritionist, which will allow you to place the designatory ANutr after your name. After three years of relevant experience as an associate nutritionist, you can become a full registrant. You can apply under one of five specialisms: public health, sports and exercise, nutrition science, animal or food. Career opportunities include roles in the food industry, research, local authorities, governmental bodies, the media and charitable organisations. You’ll also be well placed to apply for research studentships with a view to completing a PhD. Employment opportunities are currently increasing in both fields.

Modules

This module focuses on the fundamental concepts of nutrition science and human metabolism. It addresses the functional roles of energy and macro- and micronutrients (and non-nutrients) and explores the physiological influences on energy and nutrient demands across the lifespan and in altered nutritional states. This module aims to provide a conceptual framework for the study of human nutrition science and to enhance an understanding of the concepts of nutritional balance and turnover; nutritional supply and demand; the essential roles of energy, nitrogen and macro- and micronutrients. It also explores the interrelationships between food, nutrients, diet and lifestyle with physiology and human health.
