Hotel, Culinary Arts and Tourism Institute (HCAT)

The Hotel, Culinary Arts and Tourism Institute (HCAT) offers an array of credit degrees and certificates in the hospitality/culinary arts field, avocational programming, experiential learning, continuing professional education and customized contract training to meet the hospitality, culinary arts and tourism needs of students and the industry.  In addition to credit degree and certificate programs, HCAT offers noncredit cooking and culinary classes for beginners as well as accomplished home cooks.  HCAT has a 10,000 square-foot training facility in Glen Burnie with commercial kitchen labs and dedicated technology-smart classrooms.  There are additional training facilities on the Arnold campus that include a baking/pastry kitchen lab, culinary kitchen lab, and wine demonstration room.  The hotel/restaurant management degree and certificate programs are designated as statewide programs; therefore, students who live in Maryland counties where there is no public community college hotel/restaurant program may apply for a waiver of the out-of-county tuition differential for courses included in this program.  For information about the world-class, high-quality programming and international learning experiences within the hotel, food/beverage, travel/tourism, and other hospitality-related industries, call 410-777-2398 or the toll-free hotline at 1-866-456-HCAT (4228) or visit our website at www.aacc.edu/hcat or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/AACCHCAT
