Mission

The Institute of the South for Hospitality and Culinary Arts is dedicated to the meaningful learning and excellent teaching that enables our students to achieve their full potential in the hospitality, dietetics and food service industries. Our long term goal is to empower students to become leading partners in a dynamic prosperous community.

The Program

The Restaurant Management program is designed to provide students with the basic restaurant management principles and training for supervisory management positions in restaurants, hotels, clubs, resorts, cafeterias, extended care facilities, fast food operations and hospitals. The program is focused to provide students with a foundation for building a rewarding career in a dynamic growing industry that serves people. The hospitality/restaurant industry is the second largest and fastest growing industry in Florida.

Educational courses include emphasis on communication, management, human relations and leadership skills. Competencies are acquired though theory, laboratory and on-site restaurant management practice. Through the internship program, restaurant students gain invaluable on-the-job experience in local restaurants, hotels, clubs or cafeterias.

A technical certificate, Food and Beverage Management (Catering) (6050) , is included as an option within this degree program.

Internships

Students must supply their own health insurance coverage while enrolled in the program. Companies that provide internship sites require students to have their own insurance coverage while on company premises.

The Culinary Arts and Hospitality program has established internships with area restaurants, hotels and resorts. You will complete 600 hours of internship, generally in salaried positions, while your earn your two-year degree.

  1. Graduation dates will be the date at the end of the college term in which the students complete the academic requirements for the degree or certificate for which students are applicants. (The removal of an incomplete grade does not affect students’ graduation dates, since the grade change is effective as of the end of the term in which the incomplete grade was assigned rather than the term in which the incomplete work was made up.)
  2. If students expect to complete the coursework under the terms of the catalog in effect during the term of their first registration, they must graduate within five years or they will need to be reassigned to an active catalog. Accordingly, students who enter under this catalog (2010/2011) must graduate by the end of the Summer Term 2015, or they will automatically be reassigned to the 2014/2015 catalog requirements. Changes to requirements as mandated by law or by rule of the District Board of Trustees may supersede this provision.

  5. Students who place into college preparatory courses are required to complete designated college preparatory courses with a grade of “C” or better regardless of program of study.
  6. Students enrolling in associate in applied science programs must pass all sections of the placement test before award of an A.A.S. degree, regardless of the degree program’s general education requirements.
