Nutrition and Food Sciences

The bachelor's degree program in Nutrition and Food Sciences is oriented towards basic scientific knowledge, and covers a broad and diverse spectrum of subjects in nutrition science, food technology and the economics of agricultural and food markets.

Nutrition science applies scientific methods to examine the processes of digestion and metabolism, especially in humans; food technology is concerned with industrial food production and processing, while the economics side investigates underlying relationships in the agricultural and nutrition sectors.

Thus, this degree program represents a central interface along the entire food processing chain between consumers, producers, society and the economy. As such, this broad and diverse degree program covers the fundamentals in a wide variety of fields in natural sciences, economics, and social sciences.

University entrance qualification (e.g. Abitur)

German language proficiency (CEFR level C1)

At the University of Bonn, multilingualism and cultural diversity are considered to be valuable resources that complement subject-specific qualifications. This is why, in addition to curricular language modules, students have access to a diverse range of language-learning offers, including the independent-study offers at the Center for Language Learning (Sprachlernzentrum, SLZ) in which they can autonomously learn a foreign language or enhance existing language skills. Furthermore, students can apply for the “Certificate of Intercultural Competence” free of charge, which promotes extra-curricular and interdisciplinary activities of international or intercultural nature.
