Marine Stewardship Career Path

63 Credit Hours


The General Technology major allows students to select course work necessary to become multi-skilled technicians. In addition to completing the college’s core curriculum, students also complete course work in at least two technical areas. The following is an example of a career path available. The secondary paths may be substituted for courses in other programs’ primary path. Interested students should talk with their advisors.

This career path prepares students for positions as professional cooks and will provide students with the opportunity and fundamental knowledge to work aboard Unites States Merchant Mariner vessels upon successful completion of TTC's initial course work in the General Education Core and Primary Technical Specialty requirements. Students study both theory and practical kitchen applications of the requirements of quality food preparation and demonstrate and apply culinary skills while working with a mentor as an apprentice in both culinary and baking/pastry.

Students can earn only one General Technology degree in a single career path.
