Bachelor of Nutrition Science

Studies in nutrition science at Monash will provide you with a comprehensive education that taps into the multi-faceted discipline of human nutrition and includes an appreciation of the broad scope of food in society, in-depth knowledge of nutritional and biomedical science and the role of nutrition in health and disease. This course will prepare you to become a nutrition scientist and for a career in the food industry, nutrition research, government and non-government agencies or public health. It may also lead to postgraduate study in M6002 Master of Dietetics.

The course has a strong scientific and nutrition foundation in the first two years, covering the scientific basis of nutrient requirements and healthy eating, with significant reference to nutritional physiology, biochemistry and immunology, intertwined with practical elements such as assessing dietary intake, food chemistry and composition, and the complex regulatory requirements relating to food.

In the final year you will have the opportunity to focus your interest on either nutrition research, public health nutrition or a food industry placement. Nutrition research skills, the importance of nutrition policies and the challenges associated with the increase in chronic disease are a prominent feature of the third year.

You will learn from researchers who specialise in diverse areas including dietary intake and metabolism, public health nutrition, functional foods, sports nutrition and exercise science, body composition, hunger and satiety. Some research projects will be conducted within the 'Be Active Sleep Eat' (BASE) complex at Notting Hill, fully equipped with state of the art research equipment, and run by highly qualified and experienced investigators. Our facilities feature a commercial kitchen, exercise and fitness studio, phlebotomy room, sleep laboratory, body composition, metabolic testing and anthropometric suites plus consulting rooms.

Very high achieving students (those with an ATAR of 90 or above) can apply to be admitted to the Bachelor of Nutrition Science Scholars Program which will provide a direct pathway to a Dietitians Association of Australia (DAA) accredited course that enables graduates to apply for accreditation as dietitians. The details are described below.
