Department Background

The Food & Nutrition Department at GCC has been an innovative leader in providing nutrition education.

In 2000, the Nutrition Department began collaborating with the Fitness & Wellness Department. These efforts have led to the development of two certificates and a degree program that helps prepare students for immediate entry into the fitness workforce.

In addition, these academic programs can lead to students pursuing further education at a four year college or university. There are many academic and professional paths to choose from.
