The Art Institute of Atlanta (Culinary Arts Program)

Associate in Arts - Curriculum

** Weekend classes available **

Dining is more than just eating; it’s the full experience of taste, aroma, and presentation. Few professions offer the creativity, excitement, and opportunities found in the culinary arts.

What you’ll study

* Begin with basic skills and a foundation of health, safety, and nutrition.
* Progress to advanced food techniques with sauces, meat and fish, vegetables and starches, and salads and desserts.
* Learn about garnishing and presentation, as well as recipe development in traditional, American regional, and international cuisines.
* Learn kitchen and dining room operation, catering management, and other business skills, such as cost control and supervision of food service personnel.

Special features
Students in the culinary arts program compete every year in local, regional, or national competitions, and have often won awards for their skills. The associate in arts degree in culinary arts is accredited by the American Culinary Federation (ACF), which awards Art Institute degree program graduates the Certified Culinarian (CC) or Certified Pastry Culinarian (CPC) designation. Normally the product of several years experience in the industry, this designation is granted to Art Institute graduates immediately upon graduation, in addition to a paid one-year junior membership in the ACF. It is the only program in Georgia to offer graduates these benefits. An advanced baking and pastry concentration is available with an extra quarter of study.

Career opportunities
Graduates of the culinary arts program are qualified for entry-level positions–such as line cook, prep cook, first cook, baking trainee, and catering assistant–in restaurants, luxury resorts, and contract food service companies. With further professional experience, a graduate may become a sous chef, head chef, or pastry chef–or may open a restaurant or catering business. And with more than 8,000 restaurants, the Atlanta metropolitan area continues to offer a wealth of opportunities for graduates in the culinary arts.
