The Culinary Arts program leads to an Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree and provides students with a culinary education that has depth and breadth as well as crucial work experience. The Culinary Arts program is designed to expose students to a broad range of career options to which they can add depth and specificity through their work experience during and after completing the curriculum.
Graduates of the program are prepared for positions as chefs, cooks and kitchen workers in restaurants, schools, health care and university food operations, and other institutions. If Culinary Arts students are interested in pursuing Apprenticeship status, an American Culinary Federation (ACF) qualified Culinary Arts faculty chef will assist students with securing and supervising the required employment.
