Nutrition and Sport & Exercise Science - Liverpool Hope University

**Please note that Combined Honours degrees at Liverpool Hope University are split 50/50. This means both subjects will be studied equally.** **Nutrition** Nutrition and the health of the nation is a topic that is prevalent in today’s society. Our Nutrition degree is focussed on developing graduates who are able to face the changing environment of contemporary workplaces, especially in consideration with the changes within the health system. This degree is ideal for those who would like to become a professional nutritionist, or progress to further studies in the area of human nutrition, dietetics, public health or food science. The curriculum includes a focus on the delivery of five core competencies in nutritional science, food chain, social and behaviour sciences, health and wellbeing, and professional conduct. You will be taught in our new Health Sciences building, which features specialist laboratories dedicated to nutrition. You will learn from a highly committed team of research- active registered nutritionists with practical experience in nutrition, who are enthusiastic about both the academic subject and the quality of your student experience. **Sport & Exercise Science** Our degree is founded on the core disciplines of sport and exercise science, namely psychology, physiology and biomechanics, and considers in detail three core questions from a multidisciplinary perspective. How does the human body respond to the different types of exercise, how can we maximise the effects of training on sport and exercise performance, and how can physical activity reduce and prevent disease? Study with us and you will have full access to the multi-million pound, state-of-the- art Health Science Building and Sports Complex, incorporating dedicated research space and new teaching laboratories. This facility houses ultra-modern equipment where you will learn to conduct complete physiological, psychological and biomechanical profiles of human sports performance using breath-by-breath expired gas analysis, blood analysis, vascular and cardiac screening, body composition analysis, eye-tracking, electromyography and motion capture to name but a few.
