An integrated programme covers epidemiological, dietary, public health, social and biological aspects of nutritional science. Specialist topics include: maternal and child nutrition; nutrition in emergencies; nutrition programme planning, evaluation and monitoring; nutrition-related chronic disease.
The Nutrition for Global Health programme at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine focuses is on nutritional problems in low and middle-income countries – although skills and learning outcomes are widely applicable to all populations globally.
The programme attracts graduates from many countries and various disciplines who wish to equip themselves for global health nutrition research and teaching, operational work in the field or community nutrition programmes, work in public health nutrition, including health promotion and nutrition education, and for policy and programme planning in nutrition.
The MSc has been designed to focus on nutritional problems in low- and middle-income countries. This course is not a dietetic qualification.
Graduates work for local and national governments, NGOs, international agencies, academic institutions, and in fields ranging from food emergencies to research on nutrient-gene interactions.
