At The Chef’s Academy at Harrison College, our experienced faculty and staff are dedicated to providing you with the guidance and knowledge you need to overcome life’s obstacles and pursue your dream of joining the pastry industry. We offer two options in pastry arts: a 90-credit-hour Pastry Arts Associate of Applied Science Degree program (currently available in North Carolina only) or a 48-credit-hour diploma program (currently available in Indiana only). If you decide to start with the diploma program first, you can always use those credits later to help you pursue the 90-credit-hour degree. Explore this program further by downloading the pastry arts program sheet.
Through a well-balanced curriculum and hands-on instruction, both of our pastry arts programs empower you to convert your passion into a successful career as a pastry chef, cake decorator, baker or pastry cook.
As a student in one of our pastry arts programs, you will be introduced to the art of making specialty breads, cakes, pies, pastry creams and French pastries and presented with skills in advanced decoration and design. You also will gain direct experience with food preparation and decoration through our kitchen courses and will be given an overview of the organization and operation of a commercial kitchen and bake shop. Our faculty and staff are passionate about providing you with the knowledge and practical instruction you need to achieve success and are readily available when you need them.
