Overview

Didactic Program in Nutrition & Dietetics (Traditional Curriculum Option)

The 4-year Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) leads to a B.S. in Nutrition and Dietetics. Students must apply to the DPD at the end of completion of sophomore level courses. The DPD must be followed by an ACEND accredited dietetic internship in order to be eligible to sit for the registration exam to earn the Registered Dietitian/Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RD/RDN) credential. Although there is a shortage of internship sites and completion of the DPD program does not guarantee acceptance into an internship; the faculty will offer guidance with the internship application process.
