Dilemma in UKM

Since I’ll be stucked in UKM for quite a while… I’m in a dilemma.

Here my dilemma:

There are 2 related course in the food science department in UKM: Masters in Food Science and Masters in Nutrition.

I enrolled in the food science course. However, I’m thinking of switching to Nutrition.
Let me just list the subjects here…
[note: ‘=’ core subjects; ‘-‘ electives; those in bold are subjects offered to both courses]

Food Science:
=Food quality*
=Food & nutritional toxicology*
=Advanced food microbiology
=Advanced food chemistry
=Protein product technology
=Food packaging
Science of fats & oils*
Food safety management*
-Food processing operations
-Sugar & chocolate confection technology

those in bold above are the same subjects offered in nutrition
=Research techniques in nutrition
=Applied nutrition
=Nutrient & drug interactions
=Diet therapy
-Nutrition & aging

My reason to read nutrition is: since I already have a bachelors’ degree in food science, a masters in nutrition would give me more options in the future. However, this would make me Jack of all trades, master of none.

I’ll have to come up with a decision by the end of this week.

I’d appreciate any opinions from your point of view. If this is YOU, which would you choose? Why?

Yours Sincerely,
The POstGrad Student.

    The leading benefit is that SnoreRx will minimize you against snoring by moving your lower jaw
    forward sufficiently to allow the airway to your lungs to stay open when you’re sleeping.

    SnoreRx is the best Prescription for Snoring!

    From our personal expertise, both my wife and I have taken advantage of using SnoreRx to
    prevent us keeping one another awake without having heavy snoring.

    We were considering getting in
    separate rooms! Ouch.

    SnoreRx is comfortable to use – it truly is painless.

    SnoreRx is a Medical Grade product that does exactly what
    it says on the “box”!

    There are no bits that come loose and be accidentally swallowed.And also the device doesn’t have metal hardware to
    chip teeth. SnoreRx ensures
    against the painful jaw pain arising from TMJ.

    SnoreRx eliminates the possibility of suffocation mainly because it
    maintains a wide open airway.Furthermore, it prevents ligament damage.
    The impression prevents movement of the teeth
    an enables the even distribution of pressure in order
    to avoid teeth movement.

    Fantastic Testimonials
    We have read many hundreds of really positive testimonials.

    “I tried another product first and found it wasn’t the product for me,
    after giving back the product I purchased yours.
    Fantastic job!”
    “I got this system for my son, and works well.
    Shipping was fair price
    and arrived fast. Works perfectly “
    The cost is fantastic as dentist can make custom devices for around $1200 whereas
    SnoreRx costs less than a tenth of that price.
    Customer care

    Testimonial after testimonial refers back to the excellent
    customer service mostly whenthe buyer had fouled up.
    There were NO arguments – they merely replaced the product!

    “I messed up initially I got it, but sent it back
    and the same day they shipped me a a different one, thanks a lot!”

    September 29, 2014 — A wrongful death suit (PDF) hasbeen submitted with respect to a man from Vermont who died of uncontrollable bleeding in his brain after taking Xarelto.
    allegedly took Xarelto for less than 10 times when he sustained a mind bleed that led to his death.
    Ms. claims that she suffered while using Xarelto a serious bleed that threatened her
    lifestyle and led to lasting damage. In November 2013, a
    study released in Medscape discovered a match up between Xarelto plus an almost 3-fold increased danger of bleeding in extremely ill patients, in addition to
    a-4-fold increased danger of important bleeding in patients identified with Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS).

    After I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new
    comments are added- checkbox and now each time a
    comment is added I get four emails with the exact same comment.
    Is there a means you are able to remove me from that service?
    Many thanks!
