Culinary Arts - A.O.S.
Our Culinary Arts degree program provides students with the opportunity to turn their passion for the kitchen into a rewarding career, and the skills they need to directly enter the hospitality field as a chef or cook.
Students will learn to master the four Ps – purchasing, preparation, presentation and profit – not only in the classroom, but with hands-on experiences that are critical in the field. Coursework includes nutrition, kitchen chemistry, hospitality law, menu merchandising and marketing, human resources and cost control and more.
Our Culinary and Event Center is currently under construction at the Carnegie Library in Downtown Binghamton.
The Culinary Arts program will be housed in the college’s new Culinary and Events Center in downtown Binghamton. The facility – a complete renovation of the historic Carnegie Library — is a combination of the best of the old and new, featuring state-of-the-art classroom space, as well as garde manger and production kitchens, a fully equipped beverage lab for mixology classes, a full-dining room, a state-of-the-art lecture hall for cooking demonstrations, and more.
Once complete, the facility will become the premiere location to train as a professional chef.
