The Degree in Nutrition and Dietetics is one of our latest courses.
Students will become highly qualified professionals in dietetics and nutrition in several areas: nutrition counselling, dietetics and nutrition in different physiological and pathological conditions, teaching, research, food industry, catering, and public health, according to principles of health protection and promotion, illness prevention, and dietetic and nutritional treatment.
It is today widely accepted that a healthy diet plays a major role in the prevention and/or treatment of chronic illnesses, such as cardiovascular diseases, diabetes mellitus type 2, and cancer, among others. Higher education of expert dietitians and nutritionists is, therefore, crucial. Our students will acquire sound knowledge on nutrition and dietetics within a rigorous scientific environment.
Our online Degree in Nutrition and Dietetics is directly linked to the Degree in Physical Activity and Sport Science, both forming a single training unit of outstanding importance. The Degree in Physical Activity and Sport Science is, in turn, related to the Degree in Psychology. These three programmes belong to our Faculty of Health Sciences. Our teachers are extremely qualified professionals and researches working in the field of nutrition in first-class facilities. Furthermore, the University has signed internship agreements with external institutions in order to complement our students training.
As in all our online programmes, cross-curricular courses are included, a feature of Universidad Isabel I. Application of ICTs in professional practice, Professional communication in English, and Professional communication techniques in the first year; Scientific communication in English in the second year; Social values and ethics in fourth year.
