Food & Nutrition

The Food & Nutrition Department at GCC has been an innovative leader in providing nutrition education. We strive to educate people of all walks of life and professional backgrounds about the importance of healthful nutrition behaviors. Our goal is to help you apply your knowledge in a practical and professional manner where the end result is improved health.

Our department offers both academic and occupational programs. We currently support three MAPP degrees for transfer to ASU in a variety of nutrition fields. In 2000, the Nutrition Department collaborated with the Fitness & Wellness Department to create an occupational AAS degree program of study, that helps prepare you for immediate entry into the fitness workforce.
