Culinary arts degree offered at Kilgore College
Classes will be at Longview High School after regular high school class hours.
LONGVIEW Kilgore College, the Longview Economic Development Corporation and the Longview Independent School District have announced the development of an Associate of Applied Science degree in Culinary Arts at KC.
Working closely with these entities and an advisory committee, KC officials designed curriculum to meet training needs in the Longview area. The courses will be taught at the Longview High School commercial kitchen located in the recently expanded Technology Building.
This new degree provides high school students additional opportunity for dual credit courses. These students will also enjoy a seamless transition into a degree program in culinary arts at the college.
Culinary Arts course offerings will begin the fall semester of 2012 on the campus of Longview High School. Classes will be offered after high school class hours.
Currently, Pine Tree and Hallsville independent school districts have culinary arts programs and both are working with KC on the seamless transition of all coursework.
