Culinary Arts & Hospitality

From preparing delicious cuisine to arranging elaborate receptions, if it’s a profession in the food and leisure business you crave, Florida State College at Jacksonville has the recipe for success.

Do you see yourself as top chef in a five-star restaurant, the owner of a successful catering business, or planning events as the banquet manager of an upscale hotel? Maybe you would rather set sail as a cruise director or meet interesting clients as an event coordinator. Recognized by the American Culinary Federation Education Foundation Accrediting Commission as an Exemplary Program, our Associate in Science in Culinary Management degree could turn your passion for food into a promising career. You’ll learn the culinary arts business from the kitchen to the front of the house in our very own Mallard Room.

If the bustling tourist industry is more to your liking, prepare for supervisory positions at hotels and tourist destinations with our Associate in Science in Hospitality and Tourism Management degree. Internships and optional Technical Certificates are included in both programs. Certificates vary from culinary arts and food and beverage management to guest services and rooms division specialist and can also be taken separately to expand your skills. And for a fast-track into food service, our Workforce Certificate program in Commercial Foods and Culinary Arts can have you job-ready in less than a year.

At FSCJ, students will get expert instruction, top-notch facilities and affordable tuition!
