The Hospitality and Culinary Management program provides students with technical skills in food production and food operations and prepares students for managerial positions in the hospitality industry. Students can pursue careers as cooks, chefs, bakers, pastry chefs, and supervisors and managers in restaurants, clubs, hotels and resorts. Students acquire skills in food sanitation and safety, culinary principles, baking and pastry, supervision and leadership, menu development, purchasing and cost control.
The Hospitality and Culinary Management program is a partner of the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation (NRAEF). Upon completion of the A.A.S. degree program students qualify to apply for the NRAEF Diploma, a nationally recognized credential in the hospitality industry.
