Culinary and Pastry Arts (Associate's)
Associate of Science
The online associate degree in Culinary Arts at Virginia College is designed for students who already have formal training in culinary skills at a post-secondary level but who want an associate degree and a broader skill base in order to increase opportunities for employment and advancement. The program offers a broad, practical curriculum and real-world instruction using convenient, online classes that give students the education they need for a successful career in the culinary arts.
Note: This program is offered in the online format but to qualify for admission, candidates must have successfully completed a diploma program that offers training in cooking and kitchen skills comparable to the one offered by Culinard, the Culinary Institute of Virginia College. Prospective students should speak with an Enrollment Specialist to determine acceptability of earned credits or degrees from other institutions.
