Chandler-Gilbert Community College offers several pathways to careers in Food, Nutrition, and Dietetics.
Courses in Nutrition teach the concepts of health care trends, leadership skills, management theories and styles, and government laws and regulations pertaining to food and nutrition services. Students can complete most of the first two years of coursework towards other Bachelor of Science degrees in Nutrition at Arizona State University, University of Arizona, Northern Arizona University or other accredited post-secondary educational institutions.
Students can register and complete a Maricopa to ASU Pathways Program (MAPP) degree, which is a two year Associates in Arts degree that transfers to the College of Health Solutions at ASU.
• The MAPP in Dietetics transfers to ASU to complete the B.S. in Dietetics which prepares students with the required coursework and skill set to apply for a dietetic internship to become a registered dietitian nutritionist.
• The MAPP in Nutrition transfers to ASU to complete a B.S. in Nutrition; students will choose one of the tracks to complete Nutrition Communication, Food Studies or Food Management.
• The MAPP in Human Nutrition transfers to ASU to complete a B.S. in Human Nutrition which prepares students for careers in public or community health and clinical or graduate research programs.
