Human Nutrition*

Human Nutrition at ATU Sligo combines several scientific disciplines to provide a thorough understanding of the role of diet and nutrition in health, and in the prevention of major diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes and osteoporosis. Students will study basic sciences, food science, food product development, physiology, biochemistry and psychology and will graduate with the skills to work as a nutritionist or a food scientist across a broad range of disciplines and sectors. As the programme progresses, students will select a specialised subject, including advanced nutrition, public health nutrition, sports & exercise nutrition and clinical nutrition.
