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 & nutritional toxicology*
=Advanced food microbiology
=Advanced food chemistry
=Protein product technology
–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
=Nutrient & drug interactions
-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?
