Kemmons Wilson Culinary Institute MINORS
Students can add a culinary institute minor to any degree on campus by completing 18 credit hours in the following areas of study:
The Culinary Essentials Certificate (CEC) is a two semester (23-credit hour) undergraduate certificate program that prepares students to enter the culinary workforce in settings such as restaurants, country clubs, resorts, hotels and many other food service opportunities. Students learn culinary arts fundamentals—cooking methods, flavor development, fabrication techniques, world cuisines, baking and pastry, sanitation and safety, nutritional analysis and culinary math. Students work in a hands-on and immersive environment since two-thirds of the CEC Program is the practical application of knowledge and skills gained. The CEC Program requires a 240-hour internship to further bridge classroom learning with practical applications in the culinary field.
