Main focus

; The Master’s Degree in Human Nutrition will provide students with specialised training in the principles and techniques of research related to basic, applied, advanced, and methodological aspects of food and human nutrition. The programme offers multidisciplinary education in which different fields converge to provide in-depth insights into aspects of the different stages of human development associated with health, disease prevention, and quality of life.

Competences

Students that have completed the second cycle have the following competencies: – Have demonstrated knowledge and understanding that is founded upon a basis or opportunity for originality in developing and/or applying ideas, often within a research context. – Can apply their acquired knowledge and understanding, and problem solving abilities in new or unfamiliar environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their field of study. – Have the ability to integrate knowledge and handle complexity, and formulate judgments with incomplete or limited information, but that include reflecting on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments. – Can communicate their conclusions, and the knowledge and rationale underpinning these, to specialist and non-specialist audiences clearly and unambiguously. – Have the learning skills to allow them to continue to study in a manner that may be largely self-directed or autonomous.
