Program Information

School:Memorial University – St. John’s Campus
Faculty:Faculty of Science
Degree:Bachelor
Field of Study:Foods, Nutrition, and Wellness Studies, General
Description:Nutrition is the science that studies the process of taking in and utilizing food for metabolism, growth and repair. Nutritionists study how foods are converted into simpler compounds used by the body, and how food choices can lead to greater overall health, or contribute to disease development.

The nutrition program provides in depth courses on nutrient metabolism; later courses apply that knowledge to specialized topics in nutrition, such as nutrition and disease treatment or prevention, sports nutrition, or nutrigenomics (how nutrients affect gene expression). Many of our undergraduates become involved in research through the Memorial University Career Experience Program (MUCEP), Student Undergraduate Research Award (SURA) and other summer research programs. They do research in areas such as nutrition and the developing infant, the impact of dietary lipids (fat) in the brain, or the role of nutrition in early life and the development of chronic diseases.
