Welcome to the dietetics program at Texas A&M University – College Station.

Are you interested in food and nutrition, science, or working with people? Then you may want to consider a career in dietetics.

Nutrition is essential for health and disease prevention and the field of nutrition and dietetics is a growing profession. Not only does an education in dietetics provide you with opportunities to work in diverse settings to help people improve their health and wellness, but the strong science foundation provided in our program prepares you for graduate studies in other health professions, such as medicine, pharmacy, and nursing.

Texas A&M’s Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) is accredited by The Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND), which prepares graduates for a dietetic internship, which is required to become a Registered Dietitian (RD).
