Didactic Program in Dietetics
The Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) option is a Bachelor of Science degree program. Students majoring in the DPD are given verification statement(s) signed by the program director when their names appear on the official graduation list. A policy for issuing verification statements has been developed as outlined in the 2012 ACEND Accreditation Standards. Courses in the curriculum are required so the DPD graduate will have the technical and academic knowledge to successfully compete for placement in a Dietetic Internship program, graduate school or for entry-level jobs. Students who successfully complete the Dietetic Internship will be eligible to take the national registration examination to become a Registered Dietitian (RD).
