Undergraduate Dietetics Program

In order to become a Registered Dietitian (RD), Nutritional Sciences students must follow the Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) track.  The DPD track is accredited by the Accreditation Councel for Education in Nutrition & Dietetics (ACEND).  During the last semester in the DPD program, seniors apply for a ACEND-accredited dietetic internships.  These internships are highly competitive and can be done in conjunction with a Master’s Degree.  An internship is not required to graduate from Texas A&M University with a Nutritional Sciences degree, but it is required to become a RD.
