TWU becomes first in state to offer culinary bachelor’s degree


DENTON/DALLAS/HOUSTON – More community college students will be able to combine their culinary talents with food service management skills thanks to the new bachelor of applied sciences (BAS) in culinary science and food service management degree offered by Texas Woman’s University.

Applications are currently being accepted for the TWU BAS in culinary science and food service management degree program, which begins at the TWU Denton campus this fall. For more information or to apply, visit www.twu.edu/hs/nfs/UNDER1.htm, call 940-898-2636 or email nutrfdsci@mail.twu.edu.

TWU became the first in the state to offer a culinary bachelor’s degree when the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board approved this new degree program in April 2008.

“Today’s chefs are doing more than cooking in the kitchen,” said Dr. Chandan Prasad, professor and chair for the TWU Department of Nutrition and Food Sciences. “They are becoming more responsible for the business side of the food service industry, including marketing, bookkeeping and human resources. An extensive knowledge of nutrition principles also is becoming a requirement in today’s health conscious environment.”

Community college students who complete an associate of applied sciences in culinary arts degree from TWU’s community college partners are eligible for the program. Currently, TWU is partnering with the Dallas County Community College District, the Collin County Community College District, Tarrant County College and the Houston Community College System to offer this degree.
