Title: An Evaluation of the culinary arts curriculum at the Schenectady Community College
Author: Brough, David
Abstract: This study is an evaluation of the culinary arts curriculum at Schenectady County Community College, in Schenectady, New York. The purpose of the evaluation is to investigate the efficiency of the culinary arts program, and its ability to prepare the graduate for success in the hospitality industry. Using the Delphi Technique, each alumni of the program was asked to respond to a questionnaire. This data was then reviewed to determine the results of the survey. The review of literature was most helpful in obtaining additional insight from authorities in culinary education and the hospitality industry. The review of the data collected from the graduates and the relevant literature concur that the program needs to be as practical as possible. The practical application of the theory obtained in class must simulate the "real world" environment in order to be successful.
