Selected major: Nutrition
If ‘dietitian’ or ‘nutritionist’ are on your career menu, add nutrition to your degree and graduate as a nutritionist or continue to our Master of Dietetics.
A nutritionist can implement programs and advocate for change within the food industry across advertising, research and product development; a dietitian creates meal plans for individual health needs and can work in clinical practice across sport and fitness, public health, aged care, product marketing, food sustainability or research.
Learn about contemporary lifestyle-diseases, food security and sustainability. Our hands-on, lab-based learning approach also takes you through metabolic and biochemical functions, biological, psychological and cultural factors impacting our food choices, the role of nutrition across lifespans and digital health.
Past students have completed industry experiences with tech companies and volunteered for Richmond Football Club.
If a career that champions good health for all people is something you aspire to, expand your options and focus on the future with the Bachelor of Health Science/Bachelor of Applied Innovation double degree.
The only double degree of its kind, this integrated program combines knowledge and skills development in health science while you learn how to leverage innovation for positive change in people’s health as well as your industry.
You’ll gain the qualifications to become an effective health scientist, with core study across a variety of disciplines and majors aligned with your aspirations. In addition, you’ll gain practical and technological innovation skills that will help you develop transformative solutions to the complex challenges of today and emerging opportunities of tomorrow.
Develop complementary and cross-disciplinary skills as you learn in health science labs equipped with cutting-edge, industry-standard technology. You‘ll learn about innovation in a collaborative and interdisciplinary environment supported by specialist academic teams. Grow creative confidence, foster collaboration, and hone your leadership potential as you tackle activities inspired by your passions and interests.
Swinburne is devoted to experiential study, so you’ll have ample opportunity for Work Integrated Learning opportunities in the form of placements, internships and industry-based project work.
Upon graduation, you’ll be equipped to work in health science or innovation fields – or a combination of the two. You could pursue work as a medical researcher, health policy developer, clinical technologist, or nutritionist or take a more innovation-led pathway as an innovation consultant, strategic designer or even start your own business.
