Vocational
Culinary Arts

Culinary art is the art of preparing food. Students interested in pursuing an education in culinary arts will be working in hands-on learning environments preparing for careers in the culinary and hospitality industries.

Students interested in a culinary arts degree will attend a culinary arts school to earn an Associate's or Bachelor's degree, and will often specialize in baking, general culinary arts or hospitality. Many culinary arts schools also offer certificate programs.

Students in a culinary arts program will take classes that teach different cooking methods, how to prepare different cuisines, along with baking skills. In addition, students may take courses in food safety, nutrition, and communications and depending on the level of education, students also may study marketing and finance.

The culinary arts can prepare students for a variety of career options. Students seeking to become a chef will oversee the entire operation of a kitchen, from managing the staff to developing recipes. Private chefs have the opportunity to work one-on-one with clients, preparing meals that are specific to dietary needs or tastes. Chefs work long hours, including evenings and weekends, but offer plenty of opportunity to open a restaurant or start a catering company.
