The Associate Degree in Restaurant Management is meant to provide a solid foundation for management careers in fine dining establishments, catering operations, and other areas of the foodservice profession.
Courses like Professional Dining Room Service, Introduction to Food and Beverage, Introduction to Hospitality, and Wines give students a broad knowledge of the field, while hands-on classes such as Restaurant Operations and Culinary Basics allow students to learn firsthand how both the front and back of the house operate. Upon completion of the associate degree program, students may seek employment in entry-level management positions in restaurants, hotels, catering companies, and other commercial or institutional foodservice operations.
