The Coordinated Program for Master of Arts in Dietetics (CPMA) program consists of 64 credit hours of sequenced and integrated didactic and clinical courses. All didactic course work is offered at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City. Students complete supervised practice hours in various facilities throughout the state. Supervised practice provides a "hands-on" experience while working with patients exhibiting disease states studied in the classroom. Upon successful completion of the required coursework and supervised practice hours, the graduate receives a Master of Arts in Nutritional Sciences degree and is eligible to take the Registry Examination for Dietitians to become a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN).
