Master of Science in Nutrition and Rural Development

Healthy and sustainable diets are a global challenge. While large populations face hunger and undernutrition, overweight and diet-related chronic diseases have taken on pandemic proportions. In addition, changes in nutrition and diets have a significant impact on natural resources and climate change. The MSc Nutrition and Rural Development trains a workforce that can think critically and develop programs to improve diet and nutrition of populations. Using better nutrition and food security as a starting point, students will contribute to sustainable development at household, national and international level.
