FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — A new multidisciplinary program at the University of Arkansas will offer students a unique learning experience in France.
The Experiential Learning in Culinary Sciences program has two options. They include a full semester during the spring, which is already under way, and a 10-week summer program, which is now accepting student applications.
Both programs feature an intensive one-week French language course, and three weeks of culinary and food innovation workshops followed by an internship with a restaurant or in the food industry, depending on the students' major. Classes include areas related to food science, food supply and food services.
The program is open to all students. But with its multifaceted focus on health, food and food industries, it is specifically targeted to majors in food science, nutrition and hospitality innovation.
