The Lackawanna College School of Hospitality Offers 6 Degree Programs in 3 fields – Culinary, Baking & Pastry and Hospitality


Where passion ignites curiosity and excitement grows into confidence for the future.

The passion for cooking usually starts in the home. Often, children first experience cooking or baking alongside mom, dad, or a grandparent. That passion never really goes away. It may fade, but once that flame is lit, it does not go out.

The School of Hospitality at Lackawanna College embraces this passion and strives to keep that flame burning for each of our students. Our team members are all lifelong learners of the hospitality industry. We are committed to sharing our knowledge and experience with each student. And, along the way, we push them to become responsible industry leaders dedicated to the true spirit of service.



If you have visited one of our local restaurants, there is a pretty good chance one of our students was either in the kitchen or working the front of the house. Our programs utilize our student-run restaurant, 409 on Adams, to gain hands-on, immersive learning experiences. The restaurant is open to the public and gives students the opportunity to learn in a live classroom. This experience prepares students with both the soft and hard skills needed in this industry.



The School of Hospitality offers associate and bachelor’s degree programs in culinary, baking & pastry and hospitality. The bachelor’s programs go beyond technical skills. Students also learn leadership and management techniques with the goal of becoming responsible stewards of our industry.
