Course Description

This course will enable you to develop an in-depth understanding of scientific principles underpinning the relationship between diet, human health and wellbeing. It will also develop the ability to critically appraise the effect of food processing on nutritional quality of foods and develop an understanding of the role of processed foods in the diet. The programme will encourage you to evaluate the current issues and developments pertinent to the nutrition discipline, and propose new insights and solutions to diet-related problems. You will develop an understanding of the functions of food components and nutrients, as well as developing a capacity to critically analyse a problem, develop an action plan and go through a scientific investigation. There are also opportunities to develop skills such as effective communication and presentation. The programme aims to develop an understanding of nutrition from an international perspective and encourages the development of research projects that satisfy both the course requirements and your own individual interests. Dependant on the module, the methods of teaching include lectures, seminars, practical laboratory classes, problem solving, team and individual project work and verbal presentations.
