GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - Students completing their associate’s degree in hospitality and catering programs at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College can now continue their bachelor’s studies in Mississippi University for Women’s culinary arts program.

The joint program in culinary arts was announced by the schools this week.

Officials say career and technical credits earned within the EMCC program will transfer to MUW.

Currently enrolled MGCCC students will have access to MUW’s “guest chefs” program that brings in leading culinary experts for demonstrations.

MUW offers the only four-year degree in culinary arts available in Mississippi.

MUW has similar partnerships with Hinds Community College and East Mississippi Community College.

MGCCC’s current program includes baking and pastry arts technology and banquet and catering food service technology. Students learn in a hands-on lab lead by chef instructor.
