About the Course

Awareness of healthy living, exercising and balanced diet has risen exponentially across the years. People are much more aware of good nutrition and generally would search for healthier food options. This is where nutritionists come into the picture. Nutritionists help translate nutrition science to the public and provide advice about good food choices for healthy eating. The curriculum of the MSU Bachelor in Nutrition programme aims to produce graduates competent in handling not only common nutritional problems but also capable of decision-making in clinical and community nutrition. The innovative and constructive learning environment at Management and Science University will assist you in graduating with a host of skills including a wide range of transferable communication, analytical and interpersonal skills. The industrial component of the programme may be conducted locally or abroad through the MSU Global Internship programme, which will further amplify your future employability.
