Go for the Opportunity

At Southern New Hampshire University, we want you to gain the skills to perfect your craft as well as the business savvy and networking opportunities you will need to cream the competition. We're more than just a "training school" - we provide a quality university education.

Experiences outside the classroom are a big part of the experience here at SNHU. Internships, competitions, class trips, community service, and other opportunities will let you use what you’ve learned in class in the real world. On campus, you will learn the ins-and-outs of running our gourmet student restaurant, The Quill, and prepare tasty treats for our student-operated bakery.

When you graduate, you’ll have the knowledge and hands-on experience you need to launch a great career.


At SNHU, we make it easy to get the degree you want - especially if you are already well on your way to completing it. Students with associate degrees in culinary arts from SNHU or other schools may transfer their credits and complete the B.S. in Culinary Management program in only two additional years.

We know that for so many students, it's about flexibility. Commuter and nontraditional students will find it easy to fit culinary courses into their schedules as they balance busy lives outside of the classroom. Third- and fourth-year labs are offered in the evenings, and many non-culinary courses can be taken online or at one of our centers. We want to work with you to help you achieve your goals.
