The Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management department support students as they turn their passion into an exciting career. Garrett’s Restaurant and the Sweet Spot are on-campus labs that provide students the experience of building skills in real-world food-service settings. Project-based learning, combined with personalized attention by experienced instructors, challenges students to develop the skills necessary to gain employment.
While many students come to explore their passion for cooking and baking, others are looking to make a career change or are interested in developing additional skills for their current career. Students are drawn to these dynamic programs to flex their artistic muscles, boost their passion with skills and learn contemporary techniques.
Graduates can become the head chef of a restaurant, general manager of a hotel, general manager of a resort and explore the world with a career in international travel/hospitality. The opportunities for employment in this field are endless.
