The demand for nutraceuticals and phytonutrients has increased over the past few years and they are being used by people for various therapeutic outcomes. This has resulted in a worldwide nutraceutical revolution. The nutraceutical revolution will lead us into a new era of medicine and health, in which the food industry will become a research, oriented one similar to the pharmaceutical industry.
Nutrition policy helps in paving way to achieve better health and nutrition status of the community. The program will enable students to help government agencies to carve nutrition related policies and programs. Food and nutrition related law, policies and act, can create a huge impact on the holistic development of the community. Therefore, in-depth understanding will not only foster public health, but will also lead to eradication of spread of non-communicable diseases.
Nutrition plays pivotal role in everyone’s life thus exhaustive knowledge would cater and meet the urgent requirement of society. This specialization will help students understand the basics and advancements in the field of nutraceutical and nutrition policy development for public health.
The foundation of higher learning at UPES since its inception has been to explore and promote areas of learning that are innovative and future focused. This has led to constant evolution in facilitating creative and collaborative learning engagements for students through realignment of curriculum and exploration of virtual tools, and open-source courseware; thereby creating borderless learning and access to limitless information.
The new curriculum framework at UPES, ABLE (Academic Blueprint for Learning Excellence) is holistic in its overall structure and yet focuses on the individual need of the student to discover, experience, explore and challenge. The learning is segmented into core subject studies, core specialism studies, minors/exploratory subjects, and signature and life skills learning. The latter three are offered by the newly-instituted School for Life.
SFL (School for Life) is an intrinsic part of the composite UPES student experience and facilitates learning and education that is a balance between what students want, and what is needed of them as future global citizens and leaders of tomorrow. With courses designed to equip students with lifelong learning skills, a focus on a wide range of contemporary issues, and a mandatory social and professional internship experience that is unique, UPES believes in igniting to inspire the best version within an individual to better the world.
