Career Explorations®

Explore Your Future

Career Ex programming is open for Summer 2024.

During the summer before your junior or senior year, explore a variety of careers focused on food innovation, culinary arts, and baking & pastry arts at JWU’s Charlotte Campus.

Over the course of two days of academics, you’ll experience life at JWU firsthand — and discover the path to your future. During your Career Explorations visit, you will meet faculty, talk with current students and more!

You’ll stay on campus for two nights. The program includes housing, all meals, instructional materials and activities.

College of Food Innovation & Technology

If you love exploring all the possibilities of food, grab your seat at the table for an unforgettable experience.

Sharpen your skills in the culinary labs and learn from our very own JWU chefs, who not only know how to teach the fine art of cooking but also have excelled in the industry.

You’ll also explore the impact you can make through food outside the kitchen, with experts leading the charge to change the food industry through education, sustainability and research. Choose from Baking & Pastry Arts or Culinary Arts programming.

Dates: July 9-11, 2024 | July 23-25, 2024
Cost: $399
