About

This Global Public Health Nutrition degree offered at the University of Westminster will give you the specialist scientific knowledge and practical skills to take an active role in global public health nutrition in a range of different settings.

Overview

Nutrition has long been recognised as a vitally important determinant of health status within both industrialised and industrialising countries. Significant changes are occurring in the profile of nutritional problems.

 Many countries continue to face problems of malnutrition and micronutrient deficiencies, but countries in economic transition also face the public health challenge of rising rates of diet-related chronic disease, such as obesity and coronary heart disease. 

Also, many industrialised countries now face problems of food insecurity among low-income groups. These challenges have led to growing political resources to address nutrition.

With the Global Public Health Nutrition course offered at the University of Westminster you will be introduced to policy making, leadership and governance frameworks. You will be encouraged to explore and debate the political and social influences underpinning policy implementation and impact.

Career Path 

There are numerous career paths our graduates follow, from working with Public Health England in writing policies, to acting as nutrition advisers to the Department of Health or other nutrition-focused organisations.

Many of the graduates go on to work in international development with organisations such as Save the Children, Action against Hunger, UNICEF, GAIN, FAO, WFP and WHO.

Other graduates continue their academic studies by moving on to a PhD or becoming a lecturer.
