Course Description

utrition is the science on how food, nutrients and other dietary components affect growth and development in health and disease. Nutrition science also examines the environmental, socio-cultural, psychological and behavioural aspects of food and eating. Consumer concerns on food and water safety, food quality and regulations are important issues addressed in nutrition.

The Bachelor of Science (Hons) Nutrition offered by IMU encompasses all these and other central issues of nutrition. These programmes provide students with a good grounding in basic and nutritional sciences, as well as equip them with state-of-the art skills to pursue careers in industry, education, health promotion, research and journalism, to name some examples.

The IMU Nutrition curriculum is tailored to prepare students to meet the work demands of the modern day nutritionists. Accordingly the curriculum accords strong emphasis not only on core nutrition modules, but also on key profession-supporting modules such as nutritional status assessment, diet-related non-communicable diseases, monitoring and evaluation of programmes, communication and marketing management.

Our BSc (Hons) Nutrition also provides students with a rigorous experience in research methodology and application for each stage of the research process and data management. Students will have the opportunity to showcase their completed research in scientific conferences and journals.
