Students may earn an associate degree and/or a bachelor's degree with a major in hospitality management. The hospitality management programs provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to be successful and competent in this fast-growing field, not only in the United States but throughout the world.

The Associate of Applied Science degree articulates with the bachelor's degree. The Bachelor of Science in Applied Science program exposes students to advanced management concepts in lodging, food and beverage, or event management.

The Food Service Management track provides coursework to prepare graduates to plan and implement large and small scale catered events, as well as manage and market restaurant and catering operations.
