Nutrition is the study of the role of food nutrients in the body. Whereas, dietetics is concerned with the prevention and treatment of a variety of food-related diseases. The role of nutritionists and dieticians is to interpret scientific knowledge about food in relation to health and disease so as to help people change their eating habits and life style to improve health. The BSDNS course has been planned to prepare graduates to work as professional nutritionists and dieticians in a range of settings. The degree program aims at preparing graduates with the professional and personal qualities required for future nutrition and dietetics practices. The course integrates academic teaching and learning with clinical experience and research towards population health, nutritional assessment and surveillance.
