Bachelor of Professional Studies (BPS) in Applied Food Studies (New York) Culinary Institute of America




Course info


You love food—and value where it comes from, how it’s grown, and the policies that influence the future of global and local food sources. Our Bachelor of Professional Studies (BPS) in Applied Food Studies program prepares you to become a responsible leading expert in food systems, sustainability, and advocacy. This gives you a wide range of career options with global impact—including government policy maker and food advocate, nonprofit executive director, food media professional, food and culinary educator, and other fields where you’ll be able to influence how food is perceived, understood, and distributed around the world. The CIA’s industry-experienced faculty will ensure you receive a hands-on, real world learning experience that provides you with the foundation for a successful career. After you’ve earned your degree, you will have a clear understanding of food policy, ethics, and ecology, as well as agriculture and sustainability, local and global food systems, and diverse cuisines of the world.


  • Learn how to explain complex food-related concepts to different audiences to influence public opinion.
  • Apply your advanced knowledge of global food issues and food history to current events.
  • Build your confidence and strengthen your leadership skills through mastery of communication skills.
  • Gain valuable real-world experience through off-campus externships and hands-on work in CIA’s state-of-the-art kitchens and bakeshops.
  • Choose a concentration that matches your career goals, such as advanced wine, beverage, and hospitality; farm-to-table; and Asian, Italian, or Latin cuisine.
  • Interact with more than 130 companies that visit CIA’s campus four times a year to recruit students. Discuss career opportunities with these leaders, which include Baldor, Batali and Bastianich, Blackberry Farm, Blue Hill at Stone Barns, CAST Alimenti, Dogfish Head Brewing, Marriott, and Unidine, among many others.
