Don't know where you live (you didn't bother to put that bit of info into your user profile) - or mention what school you are attending ... but I just did a quick check of the culinary program at the Junior college down the road and the first semester is 20-semester hours (full time college load is only 12 hours). Most culinary programs that I have found are not geared for the "part-time curious
" cook ... they are for the serious full-time culinary student who wants to cook for a living.
Cooking school isn't easy - and working in a kitchen isn't a soft job!
You might want to check with your school's financial aid office and see if they have any positions open in the school cafeteria. That way you can make a little money, get a little OJT, and not be out the time or money (tuition, books, knives, uniforms and other supplies) you would need in a culinary program.
Of course - your could take courses at the Bartender's Academy and pass your "Bar Exams" in about 6 months ....
