Culinarian-Evening Only

About this Major

Work in culinary arts is fast-paced both mentally and physically. It involves standing for long periods of time, working around hot equipment and early morning or late evening work hours. Professionals need to manage projects and tasks and meet deadlines, multi-task, maintain composure under pressure, work effectively with co-workers and ultimately assume a leadership role within a restaurant.
