The mission of the Culinary Arts diploma program is to provide an environment for students to become learners possessing the skills, knowledge, creativity, and ethical values necessary to survive and flourish in the rapidly-changing culinary, restaurant and catering professions. Experienced industry professionals aim to impart their knowledge and up-to-date technical acumen to their students, and curriculum relies heavily on actual participation in projects that are practical and technical in scope.
For you, food isn’t just what you eat. It’s somewhere between how you express your creativity and who you are as a person. And at a time when culinary tastes are evolving and cultural barriers are disappearing, the industry needs people like you. In our Culinary Arts degree programs, you’ll be immersed in an environment that’s as close to the real world as it gets. Working in a modern, professional kitchen, you can hone your cooking skills as you focus on learning to deliver the popular international flavors and techniques today’s consumers—and employers—want and expect. You’ll be surrounded and inspired by other talented, creatively driven students. And you’ll be pushed, challenged, and, above all else, supported by experienced faculty*. It’ll take everything you’ve got. But it can lead to a career where you do what you love.
* Credentials and experience levels vary by faculty and instructors.
