A nutritional science course includes a combination of theoretical and practical skills, wherein communication, research and professionalism to become a competent practitioner are imparted in the students, to transform them into effective, evidence-based and quality-driven caring professionals. Most of the nutrition science graduates take up dietetics or dietician as a career whereas the others work in health education, health promotion, general practice, food industry, pharmaceuticals, and private healthcare and government advisory posts. These jobs could include food labeling, nutrient profiling, product and recipe development, product evaluation, special diet foods, clinical management of disease, the prevention of nutrition-related disorders and overall, a clinically and practically-focused study of disease, health, food and nutrition.
