Bachelor of Science in Nutritional Science
Our program offers a Bachelor of Science degree in nutrition and is designed to train students for graduate and professional school, careers in health science and dietetics. This program has been approved as a Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND) and prepares students for supervised practice programs (also known as Dietetic Internships), and more recently, Individual Supervised Practice Pathways (ISPP).
The registration process for all dietitians requires participation in a program that provides supervised internship hours and is recognized by the Accreditation Council for the Education in Nutrition and Dietetics of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The Pepperdine NSCP-ISPP program is a post-baccalaureate program designed to meet those requirements (for those who have completed their DPD programs).
