Psychology Our psychology program offers the unique and exciting opportunity to explore human behavior and discover how it relates to the world we live in. Through our 1+3 program option, you’ll take theoretical and foundational courses during your first year, then customize your final three-year experience by choosing from one of two areas of emphasis: Applied Psychology and Organizational Psychology.

Liberal Studies If you love arts and sciences but would like the practical, experience-based education that JWU offers, then the liberal studies program might be ideal for you.

Plus, you can customize your degree when you choose a required minor in either business or project management. This program will prepare you to enter the workforce in business, nonprofits, government, and arts and cultural organizations. Criminal Justice Criminal justice has expanded far beyond courtrooms and corrections. The CIA, FBI, corporations and government agencies need well educated managers. From courses in Criminal Procedure, Criminal Law and Evidence, to Cyber Crimes and Terrorism, our program prepares you for a career in this increasingly complex and dynamic field.


Experience that moves you. Helen Connors felt like something was missing in her life. “I wanted to go into psychology and be like the social workers and school psychologists I’ve met. I want to make a difference,” she says. “It seemed like perfect timing. Johnson & Wales is easy to adapt to. The night hours are perfect. I like meeting only once a week, because I have a week to work on class assignments.”

“I was a little apprehensive about going back to school. I felt so welcome at Johnson & Wales; it was really uplifting.” — Helen Connors ’15, Counseling Psychology

“My degree opened the door to the accounting profession, and I wouldn’t be where I am today without it. The ability to go nights and having trimesters really helped as I was starting my family at the time and working full-time.”

“They understand that I work 40 hours a week, and that I have a life outside of school. Most of the faculty work in their field, so they can apply it to what you’re learning. Johnson & Wales has a better handle on the adult student. Classes are manageable and the coursework is applicable to what is being taught.”

— Joseph Lajoie ’94, Accounting Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Greenwood Credit Union

— Kristin Anastasiades ’15, Marketing

Experience is the difference. Mansour Moussavi, a professor in the School of Hospitality, specializes in revenue management, marketing and strategic management. He has spent 15 years in the hotel management industry, nationally and internationally, while also working as a consultant and owning a restaurant. A Certified Hospitality Educator, Moussavi is a member of the American Marketing Association, the Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association International and the Institute of Behavioral and Applied Management. 12

“I’m a strong believer in engaging students through use of real-life examples, then asking students for their own examples. Most of my students are in school and working in the industry at the same time. They have their own firsthand experiences and are eager to share them with other students in class discussions.“ — Mansour Moussavi, Ph.D., CHE School of Hospitality Professor


no ordinary faculty. Our experts. Your mentors. Another major difference you’ll find here is the faculty who teach our industry-focused courses. They have significant work experience in the field they teach. They’ve been there and know what it takes to succeed, and share that insider knowledge with you. They’re also dedicated to teaching, so you won’t be taught by teaching assistants here. Many of them bring real business projects into the classroom for you to work on — and oftentimes industry leaders to teach you about opportunities in your field.

But what’s most important, our faculty will not only know your name and your aspirations, they’ll serve as your mentors. At what other school can you find faculty who actively help you network in your chosen industry to find internship and job opportunities? Here it happens all the time, if you show a passion for your field and know what you want to pursue. How unordinary is that?

Marketing professor Erin Wilkinson, DBA, is a Fulbright scholar who taught graduate students marketing for microenterprises at the Institute of Marine Sciences at the University of Dar es Salaam in Tanzania. During her trip she also met directly with local women to teach them how to market their products and develop their small businesses. 13


Shortly after graduating, Aura Fajardo landed her dream job of chocolatier for Pastry Art in Walpole, Massachusetts, which develops desserts for food service distributors and properties nationwide.

“JWU gave me an opportunity to reinvent myself, and to land my dream job. The faculty and staff were really supportive and understood the industry, both from the craft and science of baking and the business point of view.” — Aura Fajardo ’13, Baking & Pastry Arts Chocolatier, Pastry Art

Ignite your imagination.

College of culinary arts

Culinary — it’s not just food; it’s business. JWU is at the leading edge of 21st-century culinary education. Our degree programs can position you for success in any food operation locally or around the world. Here you won’t just learn to be a great chef. You’ll find degree programs that combine the craft and art of cooking with science and nutrition, management skills and global citizenship that will set you apart from the competition. You’ll learn by doing in top-notch labs under the guidance of expert chef-instructors in classes with an 18:1 student/teacher ratio. Our instructors get to know you and your aspirations and serve as mentors — often helping to secure internship and job opportunities. Become proficient in a variety of basic and advanced skills. And delve deeper into each technical area, mastering the disciplines in specialized industry production environments such as garde manger, hot labs, pastry and bake shops and wine and beverage labs.

Building a successful career requires a lot more than just being a good chef. It’s vital that today’s food service professionals not only perform in the kitchen but also possess the business, management, marketing and human resources knowledge to excel beyond it. Our integrated curriculum includes a term-long internship as well as arts and sciences classes to help you develop the critical thinking and communications skills necessary for future career advancement. Accelerate Your Degree You can accelerate your education if you already have food service experience or a bachelor’s degree, and earn an associate degree in less time. Get credit for previous experiences or general studies courses completed at another institution.

“Having a degree from Johnson & Wales showed employers that I was serious. I already had industry experience, so the labs helped me identify what I needed to improve on. The weekend schedule was a necessity for me at the time because I was working full-time at two restaurants.” — James Colleran ’01, Culinary Arts
