Associate of Applied Science Degree
Train with the experts! Our Culinary Arts Program teams students with American Culinary Federation Certified Chefs who have years of experience as working professionals. In our state-of-the-art laboratories, the program trains chefs, pastry chefs, cooks and bakers for positions in the food service and hospitality field. The program leads to an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree in a dynamic and in-demand profession. Students working in the industry can upgrade their skills and abilities to improve their workplace opportunities.
Note: Because this career-education program is comprised primarily of vocational/technical courses, it is not intended to transfer to a four-year institution.
How to Get Started
Prospective students can arrange for an initial degree planning session with an Academic Advisor after completing the application for program admission. Students are admitted to the program in the fall semester as a cohort, and must maintain their academic eligibility throughout their course of study.
