Following the Grand Opening of The Culinary Institute of America's third campus in San Antonio last October, the CIA has announced the introduction of its premier associate degree program in culinary arts at that campus. The first class starts on August 22, 2011. The CIA's associate degree in culinary arts in San Antonio is based on the proven curriculum provided at the college's main campus in Hyde Park, NY. Designed to prepare students for a successful career in the dynamic foodservice and hospitality industry, a CIA education provides its graduates with a command of both classic and contemporary culinary methods and professional practices.
Recognizing the need for culinary leaders, and to specifically aid Texas residents who wish to attend the CIA San Antonio, a special scholarship has been established—the El Sueño Scholarship. This unprecedented fund provides awards up to 50 percent of program tuition for students who qualify. Prospective students are encouraged to learn about the El Sueño scholarship when they apply to both the certificate and associate degree programs. The El Sueño Scholarship is in addition to any federal student aid or CIA scholarships for which students can apply.
As an independent, not-for-profit college, the CIA focuses its financial resources on the college's core mission—to provide the world's best professional culinary education to its students. With the understanding that this education should go beyond the kitchen, the CIA's associate degree program expands its students' career prospects by also offering courses in nutrition, menu development, food safety, basic baking, writing, communication, management, and finance.
Graduates of the CIA's associate degree program include San Antonio's very own Johnny Hernandez of La Gloria, Andrew Weissman of Il Sogno, and Doug Horn of Dough Pizzeria.
