Course Sequence – Accelerated Associate Degree in Culinary Arts

The Accelerated A.A.S. in Culinary Arts consists of a 5-quarter program that mirrors the 7-quarter program content. Because accelerated students must already have a bachelor’s degree to qualify, it is possible to waive most or all of the General Education requirements, allowing the accelerated degree to be compressed from 7 to 5 quarters.

You will benefit from a comprehensive curriculum that combines career-specific courses with a strong academic framework. General Questions? Call us toll-free at +1.888.90.KENDALL or email
