CULINARY ARTS

Program Overview

The Culinary Arts program has two components—the Baking and Pastry certificate and the Cooking and Baking certificate/degree programs. These programs prepare students for work in the restaurant and hospitality industry by focusing on the development of kitchen skills and food handling techniques in both the baking and culinary specialty areas. Students will understand how to work with foods and the function of ingredients, baking and cooking methods, food economics, nutrition, and kitchen safety and sanitation. A dual focus in baking and pastry as well as culinary kitchen skills is emphasized. Oral and written communications and computer literacy skills are an integral part of the program, and a work experience internship is required at the advanced certificate and associate degree levels.
