Masters in Nutrition & Dietetics

Nutrition is the study of food elements and nutrients and their impact on the human body. This science closely analyses the substances from the food and the drinks people ingest are closely analysed and determines their impact on the human body. Dietetics means providing a balanced food diet to the body, so that the final aim of the treatment can be fulfilled.

Nutrition and dietetics studies bridge the connection between food, medicine and chemistry, focusing on the good and bad effects of alimentation on the human body. Since a balanced diet can cure diseases, a poor diet leads to imbalances in the human body. This is why obesity and chronic illnesses are the most popular specializations in the field of nutrition and dietetics. Medical schools and colleges offers Bachelor’s degrees in nutrition, leading to employment in the private sector or public hospitals, nursing care facilities and other institutions.

Nutrition is a well-paid field of medicine that has seen an increasing public interest in the last years. Graduates of Master’s degrees in nutrition and dietetics may also make use of their newly gained expertise by entering fields such as advertising, marketing and food manufacturing.
