Nutritionists promote healthy eating and lifestyles to individuals, communities and populations. Nutritionists create opportunities for people to learn about food and nutrition, design food products to support a healthy diet, influence food systems to foster sustainability, and advocate for a safe and equitable food supply across the globe. Studies in nutrition therefore include the science behind food and nutrition - biology and human physiology and chemistry and biochemistry, food and culinary nutrition science and the role of food and nutrition in health promotion and disease prevention.Nutrition links very closely with the national and global health priorities related to overnutrition and risk of obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease, much of which is preventable through a healthy lifestyle.ACU's program focuses on nutrition for general health, with understanding of the role of food and nutrition in chronic disease management, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander nutrition related health and community and public health priorities. ACU is the only university in Australia to offer students the opportunity to focus their study on culinary nutrition, an emerging area for work in the food and nutrition industry. The degree will appeal to anyone interested in a career as a nutritionists in public health and policy, in culinary nutrition science, in food and nutrition education and communication, in food science and technology, and in the research and food product development sectors. Work placement units provide students with eposure to work settings where they may gain employment following graduation and international short term study offers students the chance to enrich their university learning experience.The program also provides the basis for postgraduate studies in dietetics. Dietitians treat disease through diet and therefore require additional studies and clinical practice in health settings.
