What will I learn?

Many countries have alarming rates of obesity, diabetes, cancer and heart disease. A healthy diet and new food products are needed to address these emerging health threats, and graduates of this program are in a good position to make a difference.

The Bachelor of Food Science and Human Nutrition is offered at the Ourimbah campus. The degree provides a strong background in the principles underlying the sciences of food technology and human nutrition. This includes the basic sciences, the chemistry and biology of nutrients and the attributes of food, including food commodities and functional foods. The Bachelor of Business is one of the most popular and dynamic degrees offered by the Faculty of Business and Law. The program has a practical orientation, with students learning from case studies of real business situations.

The food industry and opportunities for nutrition focused students in the commercial sector are significant. With this in mind, a combined Bachelor of Food Science & Nutrition/Bachelor of Business (BFSHN/BBus) degree allows students to undertake and match business skills with their interest in food and nutritional sciences, a synergy that will maximise graduate employability.
