Program description

BSc (Hons) Human Nutrition & Psychology

This Joint Honours degree will provide you with an extensive knowledge of nutritional principles, alongside a critical interpretation of people’s psychological behaviour.

The Human Nutrition program offers you the opportunity to explore the connections between food constituents, diet and health, with an emphasis on practical experience and real life scenarios. You will look in detail at the functions of nutrients and other bioactive compounds.

From forensic or clinical psychology to counselling or business psychology, the Psychology course offers flexibility to allow you to specialise, whilst still gaining a more generalised overview of the subject.

Career opportunities

Many other openings are also available in such areas as: education (healthy school food program), food production (advisors to growers and animal husbandry), and food provision (advisors or trainers of catering staff).

A degree with Psychology is highly favoured by employers, giving you an excellent advantage in the job market. Previous graduates have gone into roles as diverse as management, human resources, teaching, and healthcare or art therapy.
