Food Science, Meat Production

A GCCC Certificate in Food Science will arm you with the tools and knowledge you need to enter a high-demand industry that is in need of people who can improve the efficiency and safety of agricultural products. 

Food Science - Meat Production

Food scientists use chemistry, biology, and other sciences to study the basic elements of food, analyze the nutritional content of food, and research ways to make processed foods safer and healthier. 

Under the supervision of our Animal Science faculty, GCCC offers two certificate programs in this field: a 17-credit hour Certificate in Food Science, and a 35-credit hour Certificate in Food Science-Meat Production. You can learn in a variety of teaching environments (including on campus and through distance education) while taking courses such as Food Sanitation Management, Food Safety, Meat and Carcass Evaluation, and more.
