Culinary arts and hospitality management majors at County College of Morris (CCM) now have a smoother pathway for earning their bachelor’s degrees from one of the nation’s top schools thanks to a new agreement between the college and Johnson &Wales University (JWU).
On January 8, Dr. Edward J. Yaw, president of CCM, and Dr. Frank A. Sargent, interim provost of JWU, signed a transfer articulation agreement that will allow students in CCM’s culinary arts and hospitality management programs to smoothly transition from CCM to JWU’s Providence, RI campus.
The program is open to students who earn an Associate in Applied Science in culinary arts and science, hospitality management, or the hospitality management restaurant and culinary management option. Those CCM graduates then can enter JWU with advanced standing enabling them to earn a bachelor’s degree in culinary arts and food science management; restaurant, food and beverage management; or hotel and lodging management.
To qualify, students must have a minimum GPA of 2.5 while at CCM and meet JWU’s admissions standards and procedures.
JWU is well known for its culinary arts and hospitality programs and is considered as the largest food service educator in the world.
In addition to this new arrangement with JWU, CCM holds numerous other transfer agreements with colleges and universities across the country. For a list of CCM articulation agreements, visit the CCM website at www.ccm.edu and search for “articulation.”
