The inter-universitary Master's Degree in Nutrition and Metabolism is a Master's Degree Programme taught by the Universitat Rovira i Virgili and the Universitat de Barcelona in collaboration with the Universitat de les Illes Balears. It is based on training and research excellence, including the latest improvements in clinical nutrition, nutrigenomics and functional foods, as well as, a high cooperation with prestigious hospitals, research groups and food industries.

  • An innovative approach

  • The Master's Degree Programme is unique in its three different specialties- Research, Clinical Nutrition, healthy foods- and it has an innovative metabolic approach: it gives the understanding of the molecular, metabolic and physiologic bases of nutrition. This is a very useful area of knowledge but not generally deepen in bachelor's studies.
