Nutrition and Dietetics Concentration

The Nutrition and Dietetics Concentration is for undergraduate students planning to become a registered dietitian who plan on applying for a post-baccalaureate dietetic internship.

The Nutrition and Dietetics concentration provides all of the coursework for the "Didactic Program in Dietetics." The Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) is a term used by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics to describe programs that meet academic requirements for admission to a supervised practice program. Framingham State University has one of 226 Didactic Programs. Upon completion of the B.S. degree in the Nutrition and Dietetics concentration, graduates must complete a Dietetic Internship, which is a post-baccalaureate supervised practice usually administered by a hospital or medical center. Once the internship is complete (usually one year), graduates are eligible to take the national Registration Examination for Dietitians.
