Culinary Arts Careers

We know that people enter the culinary arts field for one primary reason: they love to cook and want to bring that passion to a career they can really enjoy.

They want to build a career doing something they love!

Culinard's intensive 36-week culinary arts program and pastry arts program (at select campuses) are designed to prepare students for careers in restaurants, hotels, resorts, casinos, cruise ships, catering companies, hospitals and many other places where a love of cooking and the proper training can take them.

Our Career Development department is in touch with the industry and employers, so you'll be better prepared to seek employment. Many respected chefs in the country serve as advisors. Our chef/instructors bring a wealth of experience to the kitchens. And as a student, you will only have to take classes that are critical to your future. The instruction is intensive; you are in the kitchen the very first day of class. This is part of a carefully designed immersion program that gives you the skills you need to be successful…and to live your dream of a culinary education!
