Florida Community College at Jacksonville (Culinary Arts and Hospitality)

Today’s professional culinary and hospitality staffs consider experience an asset, but education a necessity. You’ll achieve both at the Culinary Institute of the South. Since 1990, the Institute has been one of the industry’s finest regional schools. Class sizes are purposely small. The faculty is committed to teaching vs. research. Day and evening classes are available.

The Institute’s four different programs focus on the art and business of food and hospitality. You will combine classroom theory with real world applications in FCCJ’s five-star Mallard Room. The Institute’s model internship program partners with the major restaurants, resorts, and hotels that will hire you for permanent positions.

Programs leading to an Associate in Science degree (A.S.) prepare you for employment or transfer to Florida International University to earn a Bachelor of Science degree (B.S.) in Hospitality Management. An Associate in Applied Science degree (A.A.S) or Certification is primarily for immediate employment after graduation.

Employers want artisans and managers who are good communicators with supervisory training and a formal education. Your degree says you committed the time and money to learn the business and the art. You have the education respected by quality restaurants, hotels, clubs and large industrial kitchens. You’re prepared for your career.
