The CIA today welcomes its first class of 24 students who begin studies toward their associate degrees in culinary arts at the college’s San Antonio campus. Until today, CIA San Antonio students would earn a certificate in culinary arts, then transfer to the college’s Hyde Park, NY campus to complete their degree.
The new associate degree in San Antonio is based on the same unmatched curriculum the college has been teaching at Hyde Park for decades. Designed to prepare students for a successful career in the dynamic food service and hospitality world, a CIA education provides graduates with a command of both classic and contemporary culinary methods and professional practices.
San Antonio chefs Steve McHugh, Johnny Hernandez, Doug Horn, Michael Sohocki and Andrew Weissman all earned their associate degrees from the CIA.
Students beginning their studies today will earn their degrees in March 2013. Applications are now being accepted for the next class, which begins November 14, 2011. Prospective students are eligible for significant scholarships to enroll in the associate degree program at the CIA San Antonio.
After receiving their associate degrees, students from the San Antonio campus can earn their bachelor’s degrees after 17 more months of study in Hyde Park.
