Why study Sport Science and Human Nutrition

The Department of Sport Science and Nutrition launched in 2023 and is developing several undergraduate programmes in the areas of sport and exercise science, as well as food science and human nutrition. These programmes focus on the health-related aspects of sport, exercise, food, and nutrition, which have a direct application to improving human well-being, rehabilitation, and healthy living across the lifespan.

Career Opportunities

Students who complete our programmes will be equipped with the knowledge and skills to excel in the health-related sectors of sport, exercise, food, and human well-being, which are some of the largest sectors in Ireland and around the world. The Department will also provide students with opportunities to pursue research in sport science and nutrition at Master’s and PhD level.
