Food tourism is an increasingly popular segment of the tourism industry as culinary experiences drive and are at the core of local, regional and international travel. The School of Hospitality, Tourism and Culinary Arts’ Food Tourism program will provide learners with the skills required to develop successful food tourism enterprises and gain employment in existing food and culinary tourism agencies and companies while advocating for social justice, equity and access in communities worldwide.

In this graduate certificate program, students will gain small business expertise while exploring their creativity and innovation which can be applied within both an entrepreneurial or intrapreneurial setting. 

This graduate certificate program is targeted at working professionals in and around food, culinary, tourism and events industries. Students will learn about the exciting links between experience, gastronomy, wine, culture, food traditions and communities.

Graduates from this program will be prepared to pursue employment in tourism agencies, local and international tourism attractions, culinary establishments, government agencies, historical tourism sites, food writing and culinary experiential travel groups.
