Any dish that a trained culinarian creates can be a work of art in both taste and visual appeal. The Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management curriculum is designed not only to train individuals how to prepare food in a creative fashion, but also to plan menus, calculate food costs, purchase, and manage personnel. Upon completion of the program, the student will know basic food science and nutrition, hospitality skills, beverage operation, and sanitation procedures in the food service kitchen.
