The Culinary Arts certificate program consists of 25 or 27 credits of specific skill courses which will prepare people for careers in food services. Students may pursue the program on a full or part-time basis. Students who wish to pursue the Associate in Applied Science degree may apply the certificate credits to the Foodservices Management or Hotel Management degree. As with other certificate programs, the student must first apply to the Admissions Office. Students requiring basic skills development courses in reading, English, or math as determined by placement testing are advised to begin their program with these basic skills courses to ensure success in the required hospitality courses.
Because of the nature of the program, special tuition and fees for foods, etc., may be required. Please refer to the section on course descriptions for prerequisites.
