New Hampshire Culinary Institute offers a Baking and Pastry Arts Certificate in addition to degrees in Culinary Arts and Baking and Pastry Arts. The Baking and Pastry Arts Certificate is designed for those seeking high quality culinary training without pursuing a Baking and Pastry Arts degree.
The certificate focuses on hands-on baking courses and eliminates the general education courses required for the degree. Credits earned through the Baking and Pastry Arts Certificate can transfer into the Baking and Pastry Arts degree program if the student desires.
