    Programme Description

    The Human Nutrition programme gives you a solid understanding of the principles, methods and tools of nutritional science.

    You will learn about the conversion of energy and nutrients in the human body and about the importance of nutrition in the various stages of life.

    The programme gives you insight into the effects of nutrition on health and disease, and you will obtain a solid understanding of the social and cultural issues associated with foods and nutrition.

    Our society is highly focused on food and health. This is especially because obesity has become a major problem for many people and, consequently, for society in the form of lifestyle diseases that are a burden on the healthcare system.

    The Human Nutrition programme will give you comprehensive knowledge of, among other things, the importance of foods for our health and the social and cultural significance of our foods.

    With an MSc degree in Human Nutrition, you can work in both the private and public sectors.

    Many candidates develop a talent for project management that can be used within many fields. The following are some examples of what you can do:

    • You can work as a project manager and/or academic staff member in public or private-sector organisations (Novo Nordisk, Chr. Hansen, National Board of Health, Danish Cancer Society)
    • You can also continue to conduct research or participate in projects as a research assistant
    • You can teach, e.g. at university colleges (Metropol etc.)
