The Nutrition, Physical Activity and Public Health programme from University of Bristol will also help you develop important skills in designing and evaluating research and community interventions in these connected fields.
This MSc is designed for dieticians, physical activity, food and fitness specialists and other health professionals (such as nurses, physiotherapists, kinesiologists, physical trainers and occupational therapists) who wish to gain a deeper understanding about the evidence around the role of nutrition and physical activity in public health, the factors that influence people's physical activity and eating behaviours, and how to develop and evaluate nutrition and physical activity interventions.
This programme is designed for students who want to pursue careers in nutrition and physical activity-related research, public health policy, public health consultancy, public health advocacy and legislation and in implementing programmes that promote health. Employers of our graduates include the public sector (e.g. local authorities, county health departments, Public Health England, National Health Service), Universities and academia, charities and non-profit organisations (e.g. Macmillan Cancer Support, public health agencies), and the private sector (e.g. the food industry, corporate wellness organisations).
