Minor in Culinary Arts
The minor in Culinary Arts is designed for students interested in adding culinary arts training and knowledge of gastronomy and cuisine to their existing major. The minor is especially appealing and beneficial to Drexel University students majoring in business, communications, photography, and nutrition and foods. It provides a background for enhanced employment opportunities in areas allied to their major or serves as a way to apply their major to the culinary arts. The required courses develop culinary technique, fundamental knowledge of foods and food preparation, and knowledge of major ethnic cuisines. The elective courses allow students to explore a broader variety of ethnic cuisines, specific advanced skills, as well as the more theoretical aspects such as gastronomy and food history.
The minor consists of a minimum of 24 credits. Interested students should consult with a culinary arts advisor to schedule courses appropriate to their background and goals.
