The Didactic Program in Nutrition and Dietetics (DP) is designed for students who wish to become Registered Dietitians (RD) and practitioners in clinical, community, food industry and foodservice areas of nutrition. Registered dietitians are employed by hospitals, community agencies and various government or private organizations. Completion of degree requirements will result in the student being awarded a B.S. degree and a Verification Statement of completion of the AU Didactic Program in Nutrition and Dietetics. The AU DP consists of traditional classroom and laboratory classes and experiences and is designed to be completed in 4 years. The university offers some online course options. Following completion of the program, the completion of an accredited dietetic internship program is required before students are eligible to take the registration examination and obtain the Registered Dietitian (RD) credential.
