School of Hospitality and Tourism

There’s no better time to think about a career in hospitality and tourism. Employment in both sectors is strong and a Saskatchewan Polytechnic diploma or certificate is proof positive that you have both the practical training and knowledge you’ll need to succeed. Our 10 Hospitality and Tourism programs will prepare you to work in an array of venues, including hotels, restaurants, resorts, schools, hospitals, recreation complexes and remote catering facilities, or in a business of your own.

Rock-solid reputation. We’re known nationally for our top-quality hospitality programs. Our Professional Cooking program is the most recognized culinary training program in Saskatchewan. Our two-year Culinary Arts program is the most recognized culinary training program in Saskatchewan. For those who want to enter the industry faster, we also offer our Professional Cooking and Food Service Cook programs.

Learn by doing. Recreation and Community Development students reinforce what they learn in the classroom at fall and winter camps, while students in the Food and Nutrition Management program have a six-week practicum in their diploma year. Students in the Hotel and Restaurant Management program plan and implement a fine dining restaurant. Culinary Arts and Professional Cooking students put their skills to work in state-of-the-art commercial kitchens.

Fast-track to two diplomas or a degree. Food and Nutrition Management and Hotel and Restaurant Management programs share a number of courses, making it possible to complete both diplomas in less than four years. If further study is in your future, both programs let you transfer credits into university degree programs.
