Did we miss you?

GCC recently experienced an email outage. If you tried contacting a staff or faculty member or one of our offices by email in the past few days, it’s possible we missed your message. Please be in contact by phone if you have not heard back from us! Our service to you is very important. Thank you.

Welcome to the Science Department!

For a small college, GCC offers an exciting and varied range of science classes – from anatomy/physiology to chemistry and microbiology to the biological, natural and environmental sciences and to engineering, physics, astronomy and meteorology.  Our mission is to provide high quality sciences that meet the needs of students academically and professionally.

Our dedicated faculty and staff are committed to teaching high quality science classes while meeting the diverse needs of our students.

While almost all GCC students are required to take two four-credit lab science classes, we also provide courses for students from other two and four year colleges and universities as well as interested learners in the community at large.

We offer six different concentrations of study for the Associate in Arts in Liberal Arts degree: Environmental Science, Food Science, Science-Math Education, Renewable Energy/Energy Efficiency and Farm and Food Systems (a Math-Science degree option is offered by the Math Department).  We offer an Associate in Science degree in Engineering Science. Most students in these programs transfer to four year institutions to complete their undergraduate degree. In addition, we offer certificates in Environmental Science and Renewable Energy/Energy Efficiency.

Our science classes help meet the prerequisite requirements for our Health Occupations students including those pursuing an Associate in Science Degree in Nursing, and those involved in achieving certification in the Paramedic, Fire Science and Practical Nursing programs.

Our Science Studio allows students cooperative work space and computer access in close proximity to faculty offices where students are provided with academic assistance.
