Degree: Technical Certificate

Emphasis: Butchery

​​​​​​​This program is designed for the student who does not intend to transfer to a baccalaureate degree program.

The Butchery Program offers a traditional perspective when embracing the learning process of animal butchery. We partner with our community to provide only locally raised premium meats from animals raised with the best practices in ethical farming practices and sustainability.   We respectfully consider the animals with regard to full-utilization of carcasses and long established old-world artisanal techniques imparted from our German partner program in Thuringia, Germany when preparing our sausages and cutting our meats. Our students will be working with our community partners on and off campus, gaining valuable worked-based learning through guided internships and apprenticeships.
