The Culinary Arts program provides students with the basic knowledge needed for entry into the professional food industry. Instruction focuses on a maximum hands-on experience, as well as theory and safety. Students will be involved in all aspects of meal preparation for the staff, students, and community.

 

Note: American Culinary Federation (ACF) accredits our Culinary and Professional Baking programs that satisfy the educational requirements in any state. Students graduating from the programs become a Certified Culinarian ACF (CC) or a Certified Pastry Culinarian (CPC). The top students are eligible to take the Practical and Written exams through the ACF for CSC (Certified Sous Chef) and for Baking the CWPC (Certified Working Pastry Chef).

Professional Licensure Disclosure: While NTU is making the determinations for each program listed above, we are still working on determination for each particular state(s) that are being researched. Once the information is added, the date and specific information will be verified to ensure good practice in case requirements change. In addition, under 34 CFR §668.43 require that institutions provide a direct disclosure to enrolled and prospective students in writing if the program potentially leading to professional licensure either:

  • Has determined that its curriculum meets the state educational requirements for licensure or certification;
  • Has determined that its curriculum does not meet the state educational requirements for licensure or certification; and
  • Has not made a determination that its curriculum meets the state educational requirements for licensure or certification.
