Welcome to the Department of Nutrition and Health (DNH) under the recently established Division of Health Sciences in the prestigious College of Medicine and Health Sciences at the UAEU. DNH boasts of being the first in the United Arab Emirates to offer a degree program in nutrition over the past four decades. The department has grown since then and currently offers four distinct internationally recognized programs including the four-year undergraduate degree programs: BSc in Nutritional Science, and Bachelor in Dietetics, and the two graduate programs: MSc in Human Nutrition, and PhD in Nutritional Sciences.
The DNH programs are accredited by the UAE Ministry of Education. In addition, the Coordinated Program in Dietetics is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND) in the USA. This is the only program in the country and among the five programs that are accredited by ACEND outside the USA. The Nutritional Science Program is accredited by the Association for Nutrition (AfN) in the United Kingdom. It is the third program accredited by AfN outside the UK. The MSc in Human Nutrition is an affiliated program with the University College London (UCL) in the UK.
We aim to prepare graduates to be the leaders and change agents in the field of nutrition sciences and dietetics contributing towards improving the health and wellbeing of the society at the national and international levels.
We are committed to providing the high standard of education and scientific research through our diversely qualified faculty and trained technical staff, state of the art facilities and infra-structure.
Our programs are best suited for individuals who are motivated to advance their knowledge and skills, and build their careers in the professions of nutrition and dietetics education, research and service.
