Nutrition is a branch of science devoted to the study of nutrients. It spans a broad-ranging area, overlapping with many other disciplines including biochemistry, physiology, cell biology, dietetics, medicine, communications and public health. Dietetics is one of the health and social care professions. Dietitians apply their knowledge of food, nutrition and related disciplines to promote health, prevent disease and contribute to the management of disease. The course is designed to provide an integrated education in the science of nutrition and practice of dietetics and their application to human health and wellbeing, at both individual and community level.
