Undergraduate Program Bachelor of Science

The Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) is a Bachelor of Science degree program that provides the student with the appropriate coursework to apply for a supervised practice program: a dietetic internship or graduate coordinated program. Completion of the DPD allows graduates eligibility for application to any supervised practice program accredited by the ACEND. After a graduate completes the supervised practice program, he/she is eligible to take the national examination for registered dietitians.

The selection of potential candidates for the DPD is competitive. This program has more stringent admission requirements than those of Georgia State University. Students will be formally admitted into the DPD for the nutrition concentration at the beginning of the fall semester of their junior year.
