Hi. Welcome to Nutrition. Our course has a unique focus on food, nutrition and health for families and communities in the Northern Territory, Northern Australia and beyond. You'll learn in innovative ways and work on real nutrition projects. We're working together with a focus on prevention of nutrition-related chronic diseases. We look forward to seeing you soon.
Australia needs competent nutrition professionals who understand the impact of nutrition on health and to address the prevention of chronic disease. This course provides you with advanced knowledge in biological, social and policy related aspects of human nutrition, opening doors to opportunities in health and community services, sport and food industries.
Projects and work-integrated learning
Projects and work-integrated learning are a key component of the Master of Nutrition curriculum. These projects provide students with the opportunity to integrate nutrition theory and knowledge in a range of settings.
You can have a rewarding career in areas such as health promotion, nutrition consulting, patient advisor, community health, public health nutrition, research and advising, education facilities, sport and food industries.
Graduating with a Nutrition qualification from CDU enables you to apply for registration as a Nutritionist with the Nutrition Society of Australia. You are also eligible for membership with the Public Health Association of Australia and the Australian Health Promotion Association.
The College awards prizes to the highest achieving students in the Master of Nutrition. We look forward to celebrating with students at our annual prize giving ceremony.
