CULINARY ARTS & SUSTAINABLE FOOD SYSTEMS
Associate of Applied Science
This new program of study was developed with advisory groups of chefs, farmers, food processors/distributors, and food industry entrepreneurs incorporating the latest professional culinary standards. Graduates of the program will work as chefs or food entrepreneurs in a variety of settings using their "farm to table" competencies to positively impact health.
Students will spend most of their time working in a real production kitchen and foodservice environment, on a sustainable farm, and in an active food production and distribution facility. The curriculum is grounded at the intersection of food production, social justice, environmental sustainability, nutrition and health. Our close proximity to nursing and allied healthcare programs at the college and new state-of-the-art facilities for culinary, food production, and urban growing environments make this a unique hands-on learning opportunity.
Currently enrolled students should check their Degree Works audit for specific course and program information. Students should also consult with a counselor or advisor for program specific information.
