Culinary Arts

Our small class sizes, with world-class chef instructors, provide an hourly amount of hands-on production time unparalleled by any other culinary program, and our externship placement is among the best in the United States. Whether you aim to win a Food Network show—as graduate Lindsay McClain ’07 did—or work at a four- or five-star property, as many of our alumni do, IUP ACA starts you on your way to an exciting, creative career in the food industry.
