About this degree

Single degree
In a Bachelor of Arts program you will study a total of 144 units. Typically you will take 4 courses per semester (total of 24 units) as a full time student giving you a total of 24 (6-unit) courses across your whole degree.
You’ll need to take one Arts major (8 courses) and one Arts minor (or specialisation) (4 courses), and four Arts electives (4 courses). If you’d like to, you can use your Arts electives to extend your Arts minor into a second Arts major. You’ll also get to choose eight electives from courses right across ANU. You can use these electives to try a range of courses or to take a major or minor in a non-Arts subject.

In a Bachelor of Arts double degree program you will study a total of 96 units. Typically you will take 4 courses per semester (total of 24 units) as a full time student giving you a total of 16 courses across your whole degree. However, for each semester you are likely to take 2 courses from your Bachelor of Arts degree and then 2 courses from the other half of your double degree – still a total of 4 courses a semester.

You’ll need to take one Arts major (8 courses) and one Arts minor (or specialisation) (4 courses), and four Arts electives (4 courses). If you’d like to, you can use your Arts electives to extend your Arts minor into a second Arts major.

Enrolment Status

While it’s possible to enrol in fewer courses per semester, which is called studying part-time, it will take you longer to finish your program and get your degree. If you are an international student you must always be full-time.

A course (usually 6 units) can only be counted towards one major or minor.
You need to enrol in courses for both First Semester and Second Semester.
• You can’t study more than four courses (24 units) per semester, eight for the year.
• You need to enrol in courses for at least one potential Arts major
• You need to enrol in courses for at least one potential Arts minor or a second potential Arts major
• You may take 1000-level courses later in your program. But remember you can’t count more than ten 1000-level courses (60 units) towards your single degree or six 1000-level courses (36 units) towards your Bachelor of Arts half of the double degree.

Important things to keep in mind when choosing your 1000-level courses

When you enrol for the first time you will study ‘1000-level’ courses. These courses have‘1’ as the first number in their course code, such as ARTS1234 .

Majors and Minors

There are over one hundred Arts majors, minors and specialisations available for you to study, from Ancient Greek to Visual Arts Practice.

If you aren’t sure what you want to study for your whole degree, that’s fine. You don’t need to commit to majors or minors until after your first year. Using electives can help to keep your options open.

From the list of Bachelor of Arts majors and minors choose the 1000 level courses you need to enrol in.

Because there are so many options available, you will need to take your time choosing what you want to study.

Electives

While you only need to enrol in courses for one Arts major and one Arts minor, you can use your electives to enrol in 1000-level courses for other Arts majors or minors. That way you keep your options open. Once you’ve selected courses for an Arts major, and an Arts minor or second Arts major, you should choose electives to make up the balance of your courses.

To find 1000-level courses, use the catalogue finder. Remember you can choose up to 8 courses from another ANU College at the University if you are undertaking the single Bachelor of Arts program.

Study Options

Bachelor of Arts – Single

This is a typical study pattern for the first year of a student undertaking a Bachelor of Art with one Arts Major and one Arts minor.

Cornish College of the Arts Reviews

Cornish provides several well-established and innovative programs and the students are great. Opportunity to have real impact in such a small school (less than 800 students, less than 200 staff/faculty). Staff members generally have creative or fine art background. Currently restructuring curriculums to be more innovative and contemporary.

Aging facilities and disorganized leadership hurt the school. They pay staff poorly, and there are very few perks. Tuition is very high, yet admission standards are somewhat low – tuition-funded school = they need to admit as many students as they can. Transition to new curriculum has been bumpy and perhaps does not serve undergraduate students as well as it could.

Advice to Management

Aquire more funding. Establish an endowment. Provide more internship and career placement / training opportunities. Provide better pay – or at least more perks – to employees.

Excellent coworkers
Good benefits
Supporting students learning
Many industry events and opportunities to network.
Can really clock in and clock out if you want.

The pay is embarrassingly bad. IT IS SO BAD. Can t emphasize this enough. Unless you are independently wealthy, go somewhere else.

The upper level of administration is chaotic, opaque, and bombastic. Extremely unclear expectations and out of touch with how long implementation takes. Total top-down management style. Very little room to collaborate or innovate. All campus meetings are just a formality. Little interest in letting faculty and staff lead the way forward. Watch your back.

Poor personnel management is poor. There is little room for advancement and next to no career training or professional development resources.

There are huge structural issues and massive up-heaves, all glossed over and unexplained.

Many systems are way behind the times and many departments are taking on the work of other departments.

Overall, do not feel valued as an employee.

Advice to Management

Use actual collaboration. The people on the bottom have value and insight. Short of that, at least communicate clearly with us regarding changes and rational. Transparency is a huge issue, and the lack of it has created a great sense of ill-ease and distrust.

Hire a project manager!

Core faculty members who shirk their responsibilities to meetings, etc. Pressure placed on adjuncts to shape curriculum and yet have no room to advance at the college. Basically, the college loves how successful we are in our artistic lives and wants to use our reputations, knowledge, clout, and thoughts for free. Our research gives us no guarantee for a shot at advancement. Because of this, the college hemorrhages great faculty and hangs onto complacent, staid teachers.

Advice to Management

Stop putting outstanding faculty in adjunct purgatory.

I have been working at Cornish College of the Arts part-time

Excellent people and community. My boss and my colleagues are collaborative and kind. There is a real sense that people care about each other and the students are inspiring and hungry to learn.

This company is declining rather than growing and they have handled lay-offs terribly – without grace, respect or context. For those who are attracted to this company, know that they do not seem to be making more long-term positions and are relying increasingly on contracted adjunct instructors rather than core professors.

Advice to Management

Communicate with the faculty and staff in more than representative ways. Everyone who works are Cornish is devoted to the community there. They want to be part of the solution not treated like the problem.

Criminal Justice Major

Students completing the major in Criminal Justice are instructed on the theories and practices pertaining to the criminal justice system, crime, prevention, and public and corporate responses to criminal behaviors on the local, national, and international level. This course of study leads them to function in an increasingly complex, confrontational, and violent world.

“Don’t think because you are majoring in Criminal Justice that your opportunities are limited to the field. The material you will be taught and the skills you will hone do much for your overall development as a thinking and contributing member of society—I was exposed to many different fields while completing the major and all have given me a unique and fresh perspective on the world. Pick Criminal Justice because it intrigues you, not because you are looking for a specific job: you can go to graduate school for that.”

The major is structured into three general sections with a completion of a minimum of 36 credits: General Coursework (which consists of 6 courses), Thematic Coursework (which consists of 3 courses), and Elective Coursework (which consists of 3 courses). All students interested in declaring a major in Criminal Justice must first complete Introduction to Criminal Justice (01:202:201); furthermore, in order to declare a major in Criminal Justice, students are required to earn a grade of “C” or better and have a minimum cumulative GPA of at least 2.0. Similarly, only courses that earn a grade of “C” or better will be counted toward the major.

In order to declare your major, first please visit this School of Arts and Sciences website to find tips and advice about choosing both your major(s) and minor(s). When you are ready to declare, visit the MyMajor portal to log in with your Net ID and password.

Students are strongly encouraged to make an appointment to meet with the advising staff on a regular basis when selecting courses so that we can help you create an academic course of study which will best match your post-baccalaureate plans and most prepare you for the advanced training you will need in your respective career field within criminal justice. In order to schedule an appointment with the advising staff, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

This is why students must complete Police (law enforcement), Prisons and Prisoners (corrections), and either Crime and Public Policy or Criminal Procedure or Law and Politics (courts). Any student entering the field of criminal justice will need to draw upon a background in research and research methods of some kind, which is why students are also required to complete a research methods course; furthermore, these courses serve as a prerequisite for some of the upper-level elective courses.

*Please be advised that according to the policies of the Statistics department, you can only earn credit for one of the following statistics courses: 01:960:211, 01:960:212, 01:960:285, 01:960:384, 01:960:401, 01:960:484.

Town Mill Arts Guild – Our world of art #dental #arts


#

Finding a good dentist is important if you want to enjoy your dental visits and appointments. There are a lot of factors to consider when looking for a dentist and some of these include your budget and how close the dental practice is to you. Other factors will be discussed below. You want to make sure that you choose the right dentist you can be comfortable with especially because of the sensitive and painful nature of dental works. If not well done, dental treatments can be even more painful and uncomfortable.

FINDING THE RIGHT DENTIST

One of the best ways to find a good dentist is to ask your primary health care provider. Doctors tend to form very close networks with other practitioners in different fields. Your GP is likely to know more than one good dentist to recommend to you.

2. Ask Family, Friends And Neighbors

You will most likely have friends, family members or neighbors who have had to employ the services of a dentist before. Ask them for their experience with their dentist and try to compare notes to see which may work best for you. Also, if you are new in a place, your neighbors can recommend the best and most experienced dentists in the neighborhood. This is a great way to find a good dentist.

3. Use Your Dental Insurance Policy

If you have a dental insurance policy, you can check to see if it contains any recommended dental practices. This can help narrow down your choices better.

4. Convenience And Ease Of Access

Make sure you look for a practice that is relatively close to your home or workplace. Apart from the fact that this will make your life so much easier, you also want to make sure that in case of complications resulting from your dental therapy, you can easily and speedily make your way to the hospital. You also want to check out their office hours to confirm whether it suits your own work schedule.

5. Check For Reviews On The Internet

This is another very good way to find a good dentist though you need to be very careful because many dental practices could doctor reviews to suit their own interests. However reviews can still be very helpful if you take your time to observe complaints that come up consistently with a particular practice. For example, do you have more people complaining about a delay at the dentist s way beyond the normal time? Are people complaining about bedside manners and customer service? These are all things to take note of.

You want a dentist whose services you can afford. Do a proper research and find out if the practice offers the type of payment option you wish to use. Do they allow patients pay in instalments? How much will you be required to pay upfront? You need to be very clear on this before you choose a dentist.

7. Research The Practice

If you have narrowed down your options to 1 or 2, then you need to do a bit of research concerning these dentists. Do they follow best practices. Where were they trained? Are they committed to improving themselves by continually attending workshops and conferences? What anaesthetic agents are they most familiar with? Is this the best available? You may want to take the time to clarify these fine points.

If you have finally been able to choose a dentist through these numerous steps, you want to know exactly what to look out for when you get to the dentist.

What To Look Out For At The Dentist s

1. How easy was it for you to make this appointment? Did you have to reschedule because of the doctor s lack of availability? How long did it take you to see the dentist when you got to the office? These are factors that could guide your decision as to whether you want to retain the dentist.

2. How clean is the environment? Check the waiting lounge, consulting room and any other space you get access to. You want to ensure that this practice prioritizes on cleanliness.

3. Are the staff members pleasant and courteous? Do they have good bedside manners?

4. Can this doctor meet your needs? If you have a dental problem that requires some degree of specialization, you need to be sure that this practice can provide the appropriate and necessary care.

5. Be sure to ask if they are able to deal with emergencies. This is very important as not all dental practices have the facilities to handle accidents and emergencies when they arise.

Finding a Logan Dental Clinic can be a very tedious and painstaking experience but if you take your time to do it properly, you will save yourself a lot of pain and misery in the future.

Today we look at the modern artistic movement and the medium that today s artist use to speak their mind. As you all know in order to reach me today and view this wonderful post about art you had to use a little thing called the internet. Most likely you got to this internet using a little device called a smart phone. The smart phone has taken over the world as their is less people without it than there are with it. From knowing this we can ascertain that the majority of people that use a smart phone use them for things other than making calls, surfing the web or looking up hair styles. These few use their phones as a canvas for art. Whether it is lining up a thousand founds to make a collage of someones portrait or whether you are using it to explore a virtual word using 3D glasses.

If you know anything about Atlanta, you know that there is a sub culture of hair enthusiasts who create some of the most artistic and creative hair sculptures tin the world. it is amazing to witness the art that is created in a hair style by an artistic hairdresser. Keep in mind these are not practical hairstyles and you wouldn t see them walking down the street but the less lavish hair cuts you just might see. It is truly amazing see what comes from someones mind when it comes to these creations.

Who Are The Hair Stylists?

While the majority of hair stylists are considered artist to a degree there are a few who do exceptionally well when it comes to pushing the envelope of hair styles. Although the majority of them live in Atlanta you can find a local hairdresser by using a directory like Hair Salons Near Me. there will be hundreds of hair salons that can give you the look you desire. Keep in mind, hair styles like these will not be cheap, you should prepare yourself for a $300+ price tag when requesting this extravagance. You can check out hair shows like the Bronner Bros Convention for more info on these styles.

How Much Does It Cost?

It varies from professional to professional but at the end of the day you get what you pay for. If you decide to go the cheap route you most likely will receive a cheap hair do. No one wants that and neither should you. If you are truly serious about someone creating hair art for you please look into the work of each hair artist to make sure that they can provide the style that you want.

As with anything in this world, if you believe it you can achieve it. if you want it go get it. if you believe that you are confident enough to pull off one of these amazing hairstyles then do not hesitate to contact one of the stylist to set up an appointment. I on the other hand will stick to short hair.

Shared Space Different Views

Nicola Dennis says ‘From Fri 30th August I and my friends Eddie Burrows and Steve Collins are hosting an exhibition in the Courtyard Gallery at the Town Mill. Our exhibition “Shared Space Different Views” will portray three very different ways of interpreting our beautiful West Country landscape and the wildlife within. As we are all new, this year, to TMAG, it will be our first exhibition and it would be wonderful to be able to meet as many other members as possible during our three week exhibition and to put names to faces. Please come and say hello and have a look at what we are doing. Your support would be much appreciated and would make our first flight into the world of exhibiting a little less daunting.’

One of the principle aims of TMAG is to help new artists into the exciting, but somewhat off putting, world of exhibiting – so do come along and see how much new exhibitors can achieve!

Our Artist Buddies

We here at the Art Guild are all about networking and friends so when we come across a few blogs that support our vision we reciprocate. If you are in the network check out Tigers. Pumpkins. Glittery Penguin. Magic Machines and Regina over on the blogging network as they support us so well over there. In the event you are ever in a wonderful town called Fort Worth, TX then be sure to check out some of the awesome nightlife that it has to offer. Some of the best Fort Worth strip clubs that I have visited were all in one concentrated area so it is very possible to bounce from one club to another if you so choose.

Bachelor of Arts (BA): Hospitality Management Degree Overview

Essential Information

Hospitality management bachelor’s programs require four years of study, although accelerated 2-year programs are available for students who have an associate degree. Most programs provide a broad curriculum with specialties such as food and beverage operations, lodging and facilities management, conference and trade show planning, casino management, and even entrepreneurship.

B.A. programs typically include more liberal arts classes than Bachelor of Science programs. Online program options are available, as are many opportunities to study abroad. A management trainee program or internship is required of students in order to graduate. Generally, these programs require a high school diploma or GED for admission.

Find schools that offer these popular programs

  • Resort Management
  • Resort, Hotel, Motel, and Spa Management
  • Restaurant Mgmt
  • Travel and Tourism Management

Bachelor’s Degree in Hospitality Management

In bachelor’s degree programs in hospitality management, students take general business coursework, such as marketing, business law, organizational behavior, computers, and accounting. General management topics, such as the legal aspects of the hospitality business and human resources management, may also be included. Core hospitality topics may cover:

  • Special events marketing
  • Food and beverage controls
  • Catering management
  • Security and loss prevention
  • Hospitality facilities management
  • Dining room service

Popular Career Choices

Graduates of hospitality management bachelor’s degree programs have opportunities in many areas or the food and beverage, travel, tourism, and lodging industries. Internships gained as part of the degree program may be helpful in securing employment in a particular venue or company. Some examples of entry-level management positions include:

  • Catering manager
  • Food service manager
  • Lodging manager
  • Sales manager
  • Meeting and convention planner

Employment Outlook and Salary Info

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the demand for lodging managers is predicted to increase by 8% during the 2014-2024 decade. Meeting, convention and event planners should expect faster-than-average employment growth of 10% during the same time period. In May of 2015, the BLS estimated the mean annual salary of event planners was $50,910. Lodging managers averaged $57,810.

Continuing Education

Individuals with a bachelor’s degree in hospitality management may pursue an advanced degree, such as a master’s degree in hospitality management or international hospitality management. Large hospitality chains often promote from within, so work experience can also assist in career advancement.

Voluntary professional certification is available through many organizations, including the American Hotel and Lodging Educational Institute. This organization has certification options in housekeeping, sales, food and beverage, human resources, front office, security, revenue management, and maintenance. A series of education and experience requirements must be met to earn a designation.

Students who earn a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Hospitality Management can learn how to operate a hospitality-oriented business. Graduates may be qualified for entry-level management positions, and they can pursue voluntary certifications to enhance their job applications. They may also go on to enroll in hospitality management master’s programs.

Clinical Psychology #sas, #school #of #arts #and #sciences, #rutgers #university, #state


#

The clinical science program at Rutgers is designed for students with a primary interest in research and scholarship in addition to clinical practice. The majority of the faculty have a cognitive or behavioral approach to assessment and treatment, and the program is geared primarily to students who wish to receive this type of training. There are also more limited opportunities for students whose interests are eclectic and who may supplement training in cognitive behavior therapy with courses and supervised experiences in other approaches (e.g. family systems). For students whose primary interests are in the practice of clinical psychology, the University also offers graduate training in clinical psychology leading to the Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.) degree through the separate Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology (GSAPP).

The Clinical Ph.D. program at Rutgers University has been an American Psychological Association accredited training program since 1965. Questions about APA accreditation status can be directed to the program or to the APA Office on Accreditation at (202) 336-5979, or by mail at 750 First St. NE, Washington, DC 20002-4242

We are a member of the Academy of Psychological Clinical Science, a coalition of doctoral and internship training programs that share a common goal of producing and applying scientific knowledge to the assessment, understanding, and amelioration of human problems. Membership in the Academy is granted only after a thorough peer review process. The Rutgers Clinical Ph.D. program was recently accredited by the Psychological Clinical Science Accreditation System, as well. Our membership in the Academy and accreditation by the Psychological Clinical Science Accreditation System indicates that we are committed to excellence in scientific training, and to using clinical science as the foundation for design, implementing, and evaluating assessment and intervention procedures. We view clinical psychology as a specialty area within the discipline of psychology, and believe that research, scholarship, and clinical application should be firmly grounded in the core knowledge base of psychology as a science.

The core clinical faculty are drawn from the Department of Psychology, the Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology. the Center of Alcohol Studies. and the adjacent Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. The breadth of faculty interests and expertise in research permits students to create a program of study tailored to their particular scholarly interests. Clinical faculty conduct research on cognitive and behavior therapies, health psychology, psychophysiology, applied behavior analysis, prevention, substance abuse, emotional intelligence, cognitive functioning, eating disorders, anxiety disorders, and autism. Students have the opportunity to work with child, adolescent, adult, and older adult populations in multiple research labs at Rutgers and affiliated institutions.

The training approach relies heavily upon a mentorship model of training. Students are matched with a research mentor when they begin their graduate training program, and involve themselves in one or more research projects upon entering the program, initially as apprentices in ongoing projects, and subsequently as independent investigators. Students may study not only with clinical psychology faculty, but also with non-clinical researchers in the Psychology Department, and it is not uncommon for students to participate in more than one research group. Equally important is the goal of helping students to develop clinical skills. As in the research component of the program, our philosophy is that an apprenticeship model is most effective in teaching clinical skills. Students have available as role models a large number of faculty members who embody the clinical scientist concept. These faculty not only conduct research, but also are experienced clinical psychologists who are directly involved in clinical practice of various kinds. Students also have access to doctoral faculty in the Psy.D. program who focus primarily on clinical practice.

Our graduates consistently score well on the Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology (EPPP) exam and the vast majority go on to attain licensure to practice psychology. Despite this, our program is primarily a research-focused program and is not a good match for students interested in careers focused primarily on clinical service delivery. For additional information about Clinical Ph.D. program selection and admissions procedures, please see http://clinicalpsychgradschool.org/. a website that provides information and resources that may be helpful in your graduate school selection process.

Philosophy and Religion Degree Programs – Department Information #ba #philosophy,ba #religious

Philosophy Religion

Questions?

Philosophy explores the nature of the world, the basis of human values, and foundations of reason. Philosophy also offers the challenge of interpreting the work of thinkers who have created our intellectual traditions. Students approach these issues through study of both historical literature and contemporary developments.

The study of Western and Eastern religious traditions introduces students to a major influence on all civilizations. Journalists, diplomats, and government specialists benefit from a serious consideration of the inner workings of the religious ethos of civilizations. Daily events remind us that there is no more motivating factor in the culture of nations than ardently held religious belief. A thorough understanding of the modern world requires familiarity with its religious heritage. American University’s Washington, DC setting is advantageous for the study of religion, with national offices and centers for many religions. The Consortium of Universities of the Washington Metropolitan Area also offers a variety of courses in philosophy and religion that are available to American University students.

Why Study Philosophy or Religion?

Students often want to know the practical value of studying philosophy or religion. In other words, how will it help you in the future? What jobs are available for philosophy and religious studies majors? What if you want to continue on to graduate school, but don’t want to teach philosophy or religion?

The study of philosophy or religion helps students develop valuable skills leading to work in any number of fields. Studying philosophy or religion provides excellent preparation for graduate study in many disciplines and areas of study.

Check out a short piece from NPR on the need for philosophers engaged in public debate here .

Career opportunities

Students graduating with majors in philosophy or religion have chosen careers in law, medicine, social work, the ministry, computer science, environmental protection, human rights, journalism, communication, government, business, education, race relations, and applied ethics.

New studies have also shown that degrees in the Humanities, especially Philosophy, have great returns on investment .

Graduate school

Students have pursued graduate study in philosophy, religious studies, theology, history, psychology, linguistics, anthropology, medicine, law, economics, public health, literature, and education.

Intellectual development and skills

Philosophy and religion courses are ideal for students who want to develop and improve writing and analytical skills. Students of philosophy or religion become more aware of themselves and the world around them. By raising questions that explore the basic principles of existence and ultimate human concerns, the study of philosophy or religion helps students develop many skills such as the ability to

  • reason clearly
  • extract what is essential from large amounts of information
  • understand and analyze complicated texts
  • develop a well-structured argument
  • express ideas in a clear and persuasive manner
  • solve problems

Why Study Philosophy in DC?

Our location in the heart of DC provides:

  • Easy access to Smithsonian Institutions, museums, national monuments, and the Library of Congress
  • A wealth of varied and diverse internship and service opportunities with the federal government and non-profit organizations
  • Opportunities to see and participate in political life and history as it happens

Why Choose AU?

At American University, our graduate and undergraduate programs prepare students to enter into the field of professional philosophy or many fields of postgraduate education. Besides teaching the classics of historical and contemporary philosophical thought and important philosophical developments, many classes are devoted to the application of philosophy to issues concerning biomedicine, environmental protection, human rights, the media, business, and race relations. Alumni of our BA program pursue graduate work not only in philosophy but also in other fields such as history, psychology, linguistics, computer science, anthropology, and literature. Many positions in science and industry require the analytical skills gained through the study of philosophy. In addition, the Philosophy program emphasizes clear thinking, accurate writing, and problem solving as well as the application to today’s practical problems. These skills are excellent preparation for further study toward law, medicine, social work, the ministry, and other professional careers.

What Is Philosophy?

The best way to find an answer to this question is to take one or two philosophy courses (as part of your general education requirements). However, for those of you looking for an instant answer, philosophy is the study of ideas, whether moral, legal, religious, or aesthetic. Philosophers explore the nature of the real world, the basis of human values, and the foundations of reason. Students at American University approach these issues by studying texts from different periods as well as from different regions. For example, students study both historical literature and contemporary developments in Western and Asian philosophy as well as other traditions such as the Latin American and African.

Vicki Muzyk ’12
At 43, I finally earned my bachelor’s degree in business administration. Wow. The family sacrifice that learning as an adult requires is most tiresome, but WE did it. I cannot thank my family enough for standing by me along the way.

Marilyn Bowers ’12
Marilyn’s drive to succeed was not just a personal accomplishment, but also a promise she made to herself to inspire others to be involved in higher education and to be a positive example for her son and daughter.

Timothy Frey’10
Timothy continued his education primarily for career advancement. When Frey was looking into criminal justice programs, he was drawn to the fact the SCPS accepted some work experience for transfer credits; the other schools he considered didn’t consider his previous military and police experience.

Find a Culinary Arts Training Program in Mississippi

This is the land of catfish, fried green tomatoes, and Mississippi Delta Blues music. Southern hospitality dominates the food scene within the state, but select culinary education programs look beyond cornbread and greens to provide comprehensive training for chefs-to-be.

Jackson, Gulfport and Hattiesburg are the urban outposts that yield the most advanced culinary presence, but not all educational opportunities for chefs are in the state’s main cities. Look to Community and Technical Colleges for pure kitchen schooling, but advanced studies in nutrition and dietetics are best obtained in four-year universities.

Choosing a Culinary School in Mississippi

Narrow your search for culinary arts, pastry arts or restaurant management education by refining your chef’s dream. Are you a management-minded pro who wants to run the show? Or would you rather focus on creating your own hands-on kitchen niche? Answer these and other questions to place yourself on the best path forward – for you .

Remember, your culinary education ultimately serves your job search, so choose a school that has these tools in place to move you along on your chosen career path.

  • Internship/externship opportunities as part of the curriculum
  • Working professional chef/instructors who bring varied experiences to their teaching kitchen
  • Student-run restaurant that is open to the public
  • Teaching kitchens equipped with state of the art equipment
  • Career planning and continuing education
  • Job boards and placement assistance

Learn, Then Earn as a Chef or Pastry Chef in Mississippi

Hattiesburg, Biloxi, Jackson, and Gulfport each offer unique culinary niches for students and job seekers. Well-known chef Robert St. John owns critically acclaimed restaurants in Hattiesburg and Meridien. Iron Chef Cat Cora began her culinary career in Jackson, where she was born and raised. Learn from these local heavy-hitters by initiating your own successful Mississippi career launch.

Tap all the career resources available to you during, and after school. Memberships in professional organizations like the Hattiesburg or Mississippi Gulf Coast chapters of the American Culinary Federation. or the Southern Foodways Alliance. provide valuable networking and educational opportunities. Spreading the culinary word is the stated mission of industry associations like these, and it’s done through members-only scholarships, seminars and conferences. Access to these events, and the culinary cross-pollination that occurs there, is valuable input for career advancement.

Wide exposure to local food culture should also be a requisite part of your Mississippi culinary education. Visit highly reviewed local restaurants with an eye toward local trends and traditions. Dissect talked-about menus for insight into local ingredients – and how chefs are using them.

On a student budget, local food festivals are great ways to rub elbows with noted regional professionals. Chefs are eager to put their best bites forward at these events, and the casual environments are conducive to sharing ideas. Volunteer, participate in a student food competition, or take a temp gig as a festival cook at one of these festivals within the state:

  • World Catfish Festival
  • Annual Crawfish Festival
  • Natchez Food and Wine Festival
  • Biloxi Seafood Festival
  • Southern Foodways Alliance Symposium

Salaries for chefs working in Mississippi vary based on location, position, experience and type of establishment. You can be sure that a sound chef’s education will increase your salary potential and upward mobility within the kitchen. Supervisory and management training and experience might yield an annual chef’s salary of $50,000 in Hattiesburg.
