A new partnership with the prestigious Johnson & Wales University (JWU) offers the graduates of Helms College the opportunity to continue their hospitality education at one of the more respected culinary schools in the country. After graduating from Helms with an Associate Degree in Applied Science in Culinary Arts, students will be able to continue their education toward a Bachelor’s Degree at one of the four Johnson & Wales campuses thanks to our exciting new partnership with them.
We see this as immense win for every student at the Polly Long Denton School of Hospitality in Macon, GA, and the School of Hospitality in Augusta. The credits they earn at Helms College can transfer toward their choice of programs at JWU, including Culinary Arts and Food Service Management, Food and Beverage Entrepreneurship or Business Studies.
This partnership offers Helms students endless opportunities to continue their hospitality education. Helms College provides a solid educational foundation in a nurturing environment, and students then can expand their horizons by continuing their education at JWU.
With campuses in Providence, RI, North Miami, FL, Denver, CO, and Charlotte, NC, Johnson & Wales was founded in 1914. More than 15,000 graduate, undergraduate and online students are enrolled in programs offering education in arts and sciences, business, culinary arts, design and engineering, education, health and wellness, hospitality, nutrition and physician assistant studies. Much like Helms College, JWU blends hands-on techniques in these fields with classroom studies so each student has a well-rounded experience. JWU has alumni from 123 countries around the globe pursuing careers in their specific areas.
Students with a deep desire to continue their education and gain further knowledge in cooking, hospitality or other specialties can ramp up the experience and knowledge already gained at Helms. If they desire to get a Bachelor’s Degree in culinary arts, hospitality or business thanks to this partnership, we will make sure they have a successful transition if they meet the necessary GPA requirements.
We can’t wait to see the first students take advantage of this fantastic opportunity between our two schools!
