Culinary Arts

After undergraduate education, master's degrees help students hone their career goals and expertise in an area of study. Graduates of these programs may decide to begin careers within their field or go on to seek yet higher education.

What is a Master in Culinary Arts? This degree is designed for students who hope to build careers as chefs and other expert food workers. Some programs are specific to certain cuisines, while others are more general in nature. In either case, the coursework is usually cooking-intensive while still incorporating important theoretical elements. For example, students are often required to complete courses in nutrition, basic chemistry, food design, tasting techniques and wine pairing.

Aside from the advantage of learning the valuable and marketable skills of culinary arts, this path of study has another benefit. Students learn about the value of fresh and healthy ingredients, and are thus well equipped to create wholesome, gourmet food for themselves and their families.

Each Master in Culinary Arts program will have a different cost. Tuition, as well as enrollment and registration fees, vary from school to school based on location. Contact individual schools directly for more information.

Students with a passion for quality food are well served by this path of study, because it sets them up for a number of food-related professions. Perhaps better than any other degree, a Master in Culinary Arts prepares graduates for successful and rewarding careers as gourmet chefs, bakers, and restaurant managers.

And three field-study trips, in Italy and abroad, help students synthesize and contextualize what happens in the classroom. A final, four-month internship then allows students to work in or research a specific area of interest, weaving these threads together through practical experience. What is gastronomy? Despite its short history, gastronomy is a concept that has often been debated, discussed, and disregarded. At UNISG, gastronomy is an approach to studying food through diversity. It is about understanding that knowledge exists in the mind and in the body, and that our identity, emotions, and senses are also tools for learning about food. Gastronomy acknowledges that food is simultaneously symbolic and physical, political and poetic, environmental and political. Program Content The result of this program is that students graduate as gastronomes—connection-makers in the world of food who have a critical understanding of their own roles. They are professionals with the tools and perspectives for shaping a new future of food that is good, clean, and fair for everyone. The program begins in September 2016 and end in September 2017, comprising eight months of on-campus work and a three-month internship.
