Aimee Elliot, Director
The Bureau of Labor Statistics indicates that the hospitality field is America’s number one retail employer and predicts its growth will increase 30 percent over the next two years. Students entering the Culinary Arts Certificate program or Food Service Management degree program prepare for careers in the hospitality industry. Students develop the skills needed to then seek employment in hotels, restaurants, resorts, casinos, clubs, catering, and corporate dining. Culinary careers encompass hospitality management, sales, product development, and entrepreneurship.
To meet the growing demand of the hospitality industry, two program options are available. Students may earn a Culinary Arts Certificate of Applied Science or a Food Service Management Associate of Applied Science degree.
The Culinary Arts certificate program is three semesters and provides an introduction to the field of culinary arts. Students prepare for an entry-level position in the expanding and challenging food service industry. This program incorporates comprehensive hands-on learning experiences complemented by supportive courses designed to prepare students for a wide range of career opportunities. This program also allows for a seamless transition into the Food Service Management degree.
