Message from the Curriculum Chair
As Chair of the Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management Program at Westchester Community College, I would like to welcome you. The Hospitality Industry is exciting and fast paced. You will experience hands on learning opportunities in our state of the art facilities that will prepare you for success. Our knowledgeable faculty are there to share their skills and insights as you advance through the curriculum. We encourage you to take advantage of every learning moment, inside and outside of the classroom
Graduates from the Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management Program have transferred to four-year colleges, while others have gone directly into careers in the Hospitality Industry. Students plan their own individual path and timeframe for success. Your instructors and staff are eager and willing to help you in any way that we can with your studies and overall college experience. We share your goal of academic achievement and the completion of your degree.
