The road to a rewarding career in the food and hospitality industries just got shorter for career changers and college students. They can now use the college credits they have already earned to speed up their path to a valuable bachelor’s degree from The Culinary Institute of America. The CIA has announced its first bachelor’s degree in Culinary Arts, designed for motivated students who have at least 30 eligible transfer credits earned at another college.
“This new degree is an opportunity for those who may have gone to college with another career in mind and are now looking for an entry into the many career options in the exciting food world,” says Dr. Michael Sperling, vice president for academic affairs. “The CIA’s bachelor’s degree in Culinary Arts will help them explore food career pathways, refine their skills, and elevate their professional stature as they enter the industry.”
