Degree information for the Didactic Program (DP) (B.S. Dietetics)

This Didactic Program provides the core knowledge for the Registered Dietitian as required by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics in order to earn a verification statement. After acquiring a verification statement and graduating from the Didactic Program, students are prepared to apply for and must complete a Dietetic Internship before they are eligible to take the National Dietetic Registration Examination.

The Didactic Program is no longer accepting new students. However, the program will remain active until all current students complete their coursework and graduate. New students are encouraged to consider the Coordinated Program or the Food and Environmental Nutrition Program.

Program requirements: Didactic Program

Students with an undergraduate degree in any academic area from an accredited university will be considered for Didactic Program. Students are required to complete a core of courses. To become a registered dietitian, students have to complete a dietetic internship, either through an approved dietetic internship at another institution or the Coordinated Program at UA, and successfully pass the national registration exam.

Data regarding the goals and objectives of the DP are available upon request.
