Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Culinary Arts

What is the BA (Hons) in Culinary Arts Course?
This is a full time, four year, level 8 programme of innovative and dynamic culinary study. It is a revisioning of traditional culinary skills training to include a number of other disciplines such as food innovation, media and visual arts, food policy, speciality food production, sustainable practices and gastronomy.

The curriculum has been designed to bring students into the worlds of interdisciplinary learning, research and enquiry and the emphasis is less on training and more on holistic development in order that graduates will elevate current industry practices to a new dimension both regionally and nationally. Graduates will be empowered to become self-starters with passion and entrepreneurial traits.

International and Industrial Experience
Central to the degree is a year combining industrial and international experience. During the first semester of year 3 students have the opportunity to take a semester of international study, followed by an internship in industry in semester 6. This will offer culinary students first-hand experience of international standards and best practice in culinary operations.

Interdisciplinary study
This course offers an interdisciplinary study of social, human and culinary sciences and will encourage students to think about the future of gastronomy, encouraging them to explore the connection between environmental consciousness and creativity, politics and food production, the media and culinary arts, amongst other things.
