Hospitality Tourism & Culinary Arts
The hospitality and tourism industry operates in a highly competitive environment. It is important that those seeking careers as successful professionals develop a strong business background that includes accounting, information technology, economics, management, marketing, and human resources. Graduates are well rounded with a combination of business and life skills that are in high demand with employers.
Hospitality and tourism is among the world’s largest and fastest growing industries, offering endless opportunities for ambitious students who enjoy working with people. The Hospitality and Tourism Management programs at Scottsdale Community College offer a variety of options for your professional growth.
The Culinary Arts Program was initiated in response to the demand for professionally trained cooks for local resorts and restaurants. This 26 year program has dramatically evolved in myriad ways to develop new standards of excellence in Culinary Arts education to provide quality training for our diverse student population and industry needs of the future.
Our state-of-the-art facility includes an advanced technology demonstration classroom and 10,000 square feet of teaching kitchens. The Artichoke Grill Lunch Restaurant and Desert Oasis Dining Room, both open to the public, provide a real life venue for our basic program students where the training is intense, stimulating, and exciting.
