Auguste Escoffier School of Culinary Arts

Diploma in Culinary Arts

Escoffier’s diploma program gives students a taste of how they can contribute beyond course and instruction in general cuisine preparation and service as well as more specialized culinary experiences. Our Chef Educators offer one-on-one mentoring opportunities to reinforce your learning. You can experience each station in your test kitchen, working side-by-side with your culinary peers.


The 40-week diploma program prepares students to enter the culinary workforce in settings such as restaurants, country clubs, resorts, hotels and many other food service opportunities. Students can gain an insider understanding of classical and universal culinary techniques in a hands-on setting, as two-thirds of this program is the practical application of knowledge and skills.

This program offers a 300-hour externship component as well to further bridge classroom learning with a culinary job role. To enhance this externship, Escoffier emphasizes career, personal development and entrepreneurial skills during this program.
