Nutrition class

If I were to go up to one of the local community colleges, do they offer any good food nutrition classes that would go over protein, amino acids, macronutrients and all that other bullshit? I have a very baseline understanding from reading my Strength Training book but its chapter on nutrition is only 15 pages long so obviously there is only so much. What classes would I look for in reference to sports health.

just buy a book and do it on your own. no sense in taking an actual class

Yup, but the classes are a joke.
I mean shit, just look at the "product" that these classes supply.

Basic Nutrition was a class I had to take for my Kinesiology degree, and to be honest it's something you could really just learn from a good book. A lot of it is common knowledge, but just buy a book to go into depth on all that stuff.
