How You Will Learn

Academy of Culinary Arts

Fully accredited by the American Culinary Federation, our programs will develop and enhance your knowledge and skills in the culinary arts.

Learn more through a three-step process:

  1. Theory. We will teach you to understand the why. Why does wine in a marinade tenderize meat, or why does ice water make flakier pastries?
  2. Demonstration and Application. Our chefs share the knowledge they have gained from years of industry experience. You will watch the instructor demonstrate a technique, and then practice under their guidance.
  3. Proficiency. Our chef instructors will give you the time and personal attention you need to perfect your culinary skills as you prepare and sample many foods every day.

You are the Priority

Student success in the classroom and in the industry is IUP’s top priority. All of our culinary and baking courses are carefully designed to provide you with the highest quality of instruction.
