    member-AND-logo-WEB-CThe five focus areas in SCC's Culinary/Hospitality program provide students with a variety of options within the industry. Students in the Culinary Arts focus will be certified Culinarians with the American Culinary Federation upon graduation from our program. Students in the Dietetic Technician focus are eligible to take the Dietetic Technician Registered Examination from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics/Commission on Dietetic Registration (800-827-1600).

    Overview

    exemplary_program_100x100

    SCC's Culinary/Hospitality program is 113 quarter credit hours and the average student completes it in 8 quarters. Students may also attend part-time. The majority of classes are offered in the daytime, and students are employed in the evenings and weekends in the food service industry. Many students in the program choose to complete more than one focus, which is fairly easily accomplished and gives them a better background and enhanced marketability. Students gain hands-on practical experience by preparing and serving luncheons and dinners in the restaurant located on the Lincoln Campus. Graduates from the Food Service Management focus may receive their diploma from the National Restaurant Association Hospitality Education Foundation if they have completed all the designated NRA course finals with a minimum 75 percent, have completed all the designated NRA diploma classes and have accompanied work experience.

    Accreditations

    • Culinary Arts focus: The American Culinary Federation Accrediting Commission - Exemplary Status.
    • Dietetic Technician focus: Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND).

    Southeast Community College is a State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement Institution.
     
    As a State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement Institution, we are unable to offer online or distance courses to students in the following states/areas: California, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands and Florida.

    Mission

    The mission of the Culinary/Hospitality program is to prepare students for employment in the areas of food and nutrition.

    Employment Outlook

    Food service manager jobs are expected to grow 5 percent through 2016. Job opportunities should be good because, in addition to job growth, many more openings will arise from the need to replace managers who leave the occupation. Ninety-one percent of 2008 SCC program graduates found employment or continued their education. Those graduates reported an average starting salary of $11.55 per hour, with a high of $21.65 per hour.

    Starting Terms

    All Quarters.
