Culinary Arts and Hospitality

From meeting planning to menu planning, the skills Valencia College students gain during their courses of study are transferable around the world, which means that, upon graduation, your job could take you anywhere you want to go. Of course, starting out here in Central Florida gives you quite a leg up. As one of the most fertile hospitality markets in the world, Orlando is a hot place to get started because jobs are plentiful and opportunities for experience are abundant. That's why we call it the world's largest learning laboratory.
