Upon completion of the Masters Programme in Nutrition the student will have developed advanced scientific skills in the area of nutrition as well as in related areas of national and international significance.

The programme can form a basis for careers in research, teaching and information, public health work, health administration, or laboratory work (e.g. product development) within a commercial or a public context. The programme also gives a good basis for education at doctoral level within this subject area.

The programme explores different aspects of nutrition, including molecular, physiological, epidemiological and public health perspectives. Learning to apply and evaluate methods in modern nutrition research is a central part of the programme, which also includes training in written and oral communication; with colleagues, media and the public. Research ethics and the philosophy of science are also covered, further increasing the students ability to communicate and discuss nutritional science with different groups.

The programme offers the possibility for the student to take elective courses and to pursue further studies in other topics both within or outside the nutrition subject area.
