Earn a Bachelor’s Degree without Postponing Culinary School

The International Culinary Center has partnered with the prestigious university The New School to give culinary students the rare opportunity to transfer as many as 60 culinary credits toward a bachelor’s degree.

The New School

Home to the famous Parsons design school, The New School is recruiting International Culinary Center graduates (or soon-to-be graduates) with a GPA of 3.0 (equivalent to an 85% cumulative average) or higher to earn a bachelor’s degree in liberal arts from The New School for Public Engagement. And the best part? You can schedule classes around your hectic schedule: You can choose to be a full-time or part-time student, or you can take online courses, making it even easier to complete 120 credits and receive your bachelor’s degree.

Students at The New School work with a faculty advisor to design a degree that meets their individual goals. The types of coursework students can take is enormously broad, ranging from humanities and science to food studies and creative writing. Additionally, students may be able to take courses through other divisions of the university such as Eugene Lang College or Parsons.

If a bachelor’s degree is something you’ve always dreamed of or a stepping stone on a path to even greater achievement, now you can do what you love and get the academic preparation that will take you and your career to the next level.
