About the programme

At Nutrition and Health food is not only examined with a focus on e.g. fat, vitamin and mineral content, but also its function and significance is studied in a number of cultural, social, familial, educational and work-related contexts.

The BA offers specialisations within three areas:

  • Health promotion, prevention and communication; students become skilled at disseminating information, performing dietary counselling, and developing exercise programmes.
  • Management, food and service; students help create a better life for individuals and improve society as a whole, working with “food for many” concepts, innovation, management and communication.
  • Clinical dietetics; focusing on nutrition in relation to citizens with special dietary needs.

Teaching is practice based and will be conducted e.g. in kitchens, gymnasiums, and internship periods ensure that students get to test acquired knowledge.
