Schoolcraft Program Code #1YC.0P399/#1YC.00399

The Professional Culinary Arts Certificate is designed to develop the advanced skill sets necessary to become successful in the dynamic field of the restaurant industry. Emphasis will be placed on foundational cooking principles, nutritional recipe composition, baking, and pastry concepts, purchasing cost control, and butchery fabrication. Practical experience will be obtained by operating the American Harvest Restaurant and Main Street Cafe venues. Students in this program are prepared to immediately enter the workforce.

This program contains some courses restricted to students officially admitted to this program. Additionally, CUL 102 , Culinary Sanitation, or proof of current ServSafe certification as well as CUL 103 , Introduction to Professional Cooking Skills and Techniques are pre-program requirements. Students with an approved high school articulation agreement can waive the CUL 103  requirement.

Students who satisfactorily complete the program requirements qualify for a certificate of program completion. Upon completion of the certificate program, students may select the associate degree as their second-year option. All the requirements of that associate degree must be fulfilled, including all of the college requirements.

This program requires students to complete a specific list of requirements before being officially admitted into the program.  Students are listed in a pre-program code while the application requirements are being met.  The full program start date and implementation of program code may be dependent on space availability.  Requirements are listed online at https://www.schoolcraft.edu/admissions/apply-to-sc/students-with-selective-admissions/.
