A prospective student interested in the Culinary Science program at The Ohio State University should complete an associate degree in culinary arts and then transfer to Ohio State.
For admission to Ohio State without a culinary degree, students may declare a major in pre-culinary science and directly enroll into the College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. It is only upon completion of an associate degree in culinary arts that a student is considered a culinary science major.
One-on-one advising by faculty is a hallmark of the College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. Each culinary science student is assigned a faculty advisor from the Department of Food Science Technology.
Culinary scientists have global, national and local career opportunities in many facets of the food industry. They develop new foods and flavors for food processors, restaurants and caterers to name a few. The combination of culinary arts and food science uniquely trains culinary scientists to succeed in both realms of artistically creating new foods and flavors along with making it possible to produce those foods for a larger population. Graduates of the program are employed all over the United States and around the world by restaurants and food and beverage companies.
