The road to
a rewarding career in the food and hospitality industries just got shorter for
career changers and college students, who can now use the college credits they have already earned to speed up their
path to a CIA bachelor’s degree. The new bachelor’s degree in Culinary Arts is designed for motivated students who have at least 30 eligible transfer credits earned at another college.
the program will waste no time beginning the unparalleled hands-on culinary
arts education that only the CIA can provide, as their transfer credits will be
applied toward liberal arts requirements and free electives. Supplementing
culinary arts core courses, students will gain field experience during a
three-credit internship and have an opportunity to participate in the college’s
semester-away academic concentrations: Advanced Wine, Beverage, and Hospitality; Asian Cuisine; Farm-to-Table; Italian Cuisine; or Latin Cuisine.
As with all
CIA students, Culinary Arts bachelor’s students will have access to the
college’s career fairs. Several times a year, more than 130 leading restaurants
and hospitality companies come to the New York campus to actively recruit,
knowing that students with a CIA education are primed for career success.
Transfer and life achievement credits can also be applied to the completion of the CIA’s
new Bachelor of Science in Hospitality Management. For more information or an application, visit www.ciachef.edu/cia-admissions/ or call
