BA-HSC1 Degree Hawthorn Send me a link to this course

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.

Our Bachelor of Health Science leads to a wide range of rewarding jobs in the fast-growing health industry — or more specialised postgraduate study.

You’ll have access to cutting-edge, industry-relevant tech in our campus labs; prepping you for a career that relies on it.

You’ll complete core units across multiple fields of health science to explore contemporary challenges and their possible interventions along with a major based on your interest and career aspirations. This could lead to postgraduate studies at Swinburne in physiotherapy, dietetics, occupational therapy or counselling.

All our bachelor degrees include a guaranteed Work Integrated Learning opportunity, which could be a placement, internship or industry-linked project. In this degree, a major component of your studies will be an industry-linked project, which addresses a current industry challenge. You’ll also have the opportunity to apply for a career-focused placement or an internship, allowing you to build a professional network before you graduate.

Tap on any major to see how you can tailor your Bachelor of Heath Science degree and study for a career that champions good health for people from all walks of life.
