Want to make people happy? Talk about a win, win. In the world
of pastries you get to both pursue your passion and spend your life

meal they've been waiting for since they gave their name to the
Our Pastry Arts program prepares students for opportunities as
Pastry Cooks and Assistant Pastry Chefs, and begins their career
path to achieving Pastry Chef status. Students are introduced to
the art of making specialty breads, cakes, pies, pastry creams and
French pastry (or as we call them, the five not-so-deadly sins),
they're presented with skills in advanced decoration and design,
and they're given an overview of the operation of a commercial
kitchen and a bakeshop.
Technically, the program culminates in a 16-week externship
offering students opportunities to apply their skills. But in
reality, it culminates in a lifetime of knowing you're the one
people really came to that restaurant or bakeshop for.
* The number of "estimated total quarters" for each program assumes you are enrolled full-time (at least 12 credit hours per quarter) throughout the entire program.
Students taking more than 12 credit hours in a quarter will finish in fewer quarters; likewise, students taking fewer than 12 credit hours in a quarter may require
additional quarters. Transferred credits from previous colleges, testing out of classes, and successfully completing classes (avoiding having to repeat a class) may
also affect program length.
The Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) system is used to classify workers into occupational categories in order to collect
statistical data. Information regarding the SOC system or specific SOC codes can be found on the
Bureau of Labor Statistics' website.
