    Studying in the United States is beneficial because students can explore a variety of subjects without needing to declare a major in their year. This gives students the flexibility to find a major/subject they are truly passionate about.

    A degree in culinary arts is beneficial because students learn about every aspect of the industry while developing technical and employability skills. Students acquire skills in the core courses that are taught in a classroom or online and apply these new skills in one of our five commercial kitchen labs as well as our student-run, fine-dining restaurant, Spartan Terrace.

    According to the Occupational Outlook Handbook, employment for chefs and head cooks is projected to grow 10 percent from 2016-2026, faster than the average for all occupations. Our Culinary Arts & Hospitality Program has been recognized as one of the best in the Midwest.

    If a student has a passion for cooking, baking, and service, we offer AAS degrees in three exciting hospitality disciplines including Culinary Arts, Pastry Arts, and Restaurant Management.
