Bachelor Program
48 JD

The Department of Nutrition and Dietetics was established in the year 2007/2008 in an effort from Birzeit University to meet the needs of the Palestinian people for well-trained health professionals in nutrition and dietetics. The department started with a limited number of students and, because of the great interest of students in this specialization, the number increased to more than 150 in the year 2010/2011.

 The department aims to graduate high caliber graduates with nutritional knowledge, capabilities, and skills that enable them to work at several worksites like hospitals and primary health care centers, international and national health organizations, schools, quantity food production institutions, weight management centers and many others. The program enables students to plan general and special diets based on current scientific nutritional knowledge and enables them to do studies concerning the nutritional status in Palestine in order to plan effective interventions.

 The department has contacts with several related institutions like hospitals, other universities, governmental and non-governmental institutions in its effort to enable students do the necessary studies and practical training.
