Culinary Arts & Hospitality Management Program
The Culinary Arts Program will offer an Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree through Iowa Central Community College. This program combines the important components of food preparation and culinary arts, along with nutrition, food safety and sanitation, baking, art of cuisine, and food service management.
The culinary arts program will also provide an introduction to hospitality and restaurant management with applicable hands-on experience throughout the program. These combined learning experiences will provide program graduates with the necessary skill sets to successfully enter the food industry. The students will complete an on-the-job training practicum in an industry field of their choice to complete their well-rounded culinary program. This will provide the student with a real-life experience and introduction, not only in culinary arts, but also food service management.
I found a program at Iowa Central that fit exactly what I was looking to do for a career.
