Gaining a pastry/baking certificate can be very rewarding. You'll learn the fundamentals of food service and baking while gaining hands-on experience in the college’s pastry shop. You'll work as a cohesive team as well as individually to create, from scratch, breads and pastries pleasing both to the eye and the palate. All projects are designed to draw your full potential.

You’ll take 30 credits over two semesters, but admission is selective, and only 15 students a year are admitted into the program. Classes begin each fall so plan ahead. If you are happiest when you are baking, submit your application.
