Program overview

Nutrition links very closely with the national health priorities in Australia such as obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease much of which are preventable through healthy lifestyle. ACU's program will focus on general healthcare, chronic disease management, Indigenous health, and other emerging areas of need in the industry and will appeal to anyone interested in careers in nutrition including nutritionists in public and private industry, hospitals and public health sectors, e-health and tele-health, in nutrition communication, and in the food science and in the research and development sectors. The program will also provide the basis for postgraduate studies in dietetics. Dietitians treat disease through diet and therefore require further studies and clinical practice in health settings.
