Our three program paths feature classroom instruction, hands-on participation and work-related experience to prepare you for three food service careers:
Bakery/Pastry will prepare you to work in bakeries, pastry shops, hotels, country clubs and in-store bakeries.
Culinary Arts will help you develop the skills necessary to work in a variety of culinary-related positions.
Food and Hospitality Management will train you to work in a wide variety of food service positions, from a small coffee shop to a large hotel.
The El Centro North campus follows a cohort program. Students enter a group of classes together and remain together in a rigorous semester-based program. All the courses that make up the AAS degrees in Culinary Arts and Bakery/Pastry are organized in a system of stacked certificates. This system results in accelerated studies combined with workplace validation through Practicum and Coop courses. This powerful combination of classroom theory and workplace practice serves to embed strong technical skills in our students.
