Join us on Zoom on August 10, 2021 at 12:00 pm for an informational webinar about
the new Hospitality program at BCC.
Berkshire Community College (BCC) will hold a virtual information session for its hospitality and culinary programs on Tuesday, August 10 at 12 pm.
Current and prospective students can register for the Zoom session by visiting www.berkshirecc.edu/openhouse and scrolling down to the “Program Info Sessions” section.
After a year-long hiatus due to the pandemic, BCC is relaunching its newly revised hospitality and culinary programs this fall.
- During the virtual information session, James Storey, BCC Faculty & Curriculum Coordinator, Hospitality Management, will review various certification and degree offerings, describe some of the new courses, and give examples of typical career pathways pursued by graduates of the programs.
- The session will conclude with a review of the application process and financial assistance
options, including grants, scholarships, loans, and work-study programs.
BCC offers an associate degree within its hospitality and culinary program in Hospitality and Tourism Management. In addition, three certifications are available: Lodging Management, Culinary Arts Management, and the NEW Food and Beverage Management.
The Berkshire Culinary Institute will be the only post-high school culinary institute in the Berkshires, which is an exciting opportunity for BCC students. It will serve as a state-of-the-art facility that trains head chefs, cooks, bakers, and other food specialists, in an industry growing at a rate faster than the national average.”
