Prerequisites: It is recommended, but not mandatorily required, that students come from a college-major field related to environment or health.


This course introduces people on human nutrition, integrating basic concepts of sustainability science with the study of human nutrition. No college-level science background is required; rather, the course will provide elementary aspects of the several socio-biological sciences that are needed. Its main aim is to provide a nutrition background that will help students make appropriate, informed choices from the vast array of foods available in today's marketplace. It is expected that students will obtain a general panorama about a wide range of current health issues that are related with nutrition nowadays.

This course is designed for the person who wants an introduction to nutrition and, who may later choose a major in it, or simply wants to improve his/her health and wellbeing, especially considering the impact that each one of us is making on Earth. Through this course each student will have a better overview of what nutrients are and what nutrients and foods do for humans; how healthy people can best get the amounts of nutrients and foods they need throughout their lifetime; how people -mainly in current times- alter foods and their nutrient content; and food and sustainability issues of current interest.

This is one of the main courses of the CIPSS´s Health and Psychology area, its nature is theoretical and participative, and it seeks to clarify the following question: How to apply knowledge on nutrition for optimal health, while fostering sustainability?
