  • A Great Foundation, and So Much More

    Students at our Hyde Park campus in New York benefit from learning at the CIA’s major college campus—unique in all of culinary education for its focus and world-class resources.

    At Hyde Park, you have direct access to our complete set of degree programs—associate and bachelor’s degrees in culinary arts, baking and pastry arts, applied food studies, and culinary science. With 170 acres of educational and recreational facilities, you will:

    • Immerse yourself in a world of food-focused discovery as you earn a valued CIA degree.
    • Be taught and mentored by an expert team of more than 150 chefs and professors with outstanding industry and education credentials.
    • Experience 1,300+ hours of hands-on learning in Hyde Park’s 41 professional kitchens and bakeshops, and in our award-winning on-campus restaurants.
    • Join a vibrant food community that encourages you to develop your talents and share ideas with your peers.

    At the CIA, you will also experience an advanced way of learning about food that you simply can't find anywhere else. That's because here you go beyond memorizing and executing foods and cooking techniques—you learn how to analyze them, to adapt them, to get creative with them. You develop a special understanding of food that gives you the foundation to grow and be a leader. Top foodservice companies seek out this level of knowledge and innovative spirit, and that's why they turn to the CIA when it's time to hire.
