Hospitality Associate of Science Transfer Degree
Hospitality is the study of servicing and satisfying guests within hotels, restaurants, private clubs, managed food service, event planning, tourism related businesses, and travel providers. The students will be trained in principles of supervision, marketing, purchasing, cost control, customer service, basic food service and catering, business and accounting in relationship to the hospitality and tourism industry. The courses within this program are designed to provide students with applicable skills useful in a vast range of occupations.
The Associate in Arts for Transfer (AA-T) or the Associate in Science for Transfer (AS-T) is intended for students who plan to complete a bachelor's degree in a similar major at a CSU campus. Students completing these degrees (AA-T or AS-T) are guaranteed admission to the CSU system, but not to a particular campus or major. To earn this Hospitality Management AS-T degree, students must meet the following requirements:
- completion of the following major requirements with a minimum grade of "C" (or "P");
- completion of a minimum of 60 CSU transferable semester units with a grade point average of a least 2.0; and
- certified completion of the CSU General Education-Breadth (CSUGE) or Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) for CSU, which requires a minimum of 37-39 units.
It is highly recommended that students complete courses that satisfy the U.S. History, Constitution, and American Ideals requirement as part of CSUGE or IGETC before transferring to a CSU.
Students planning to transfer to a four-year institution and major in Hospitality Management should consult with a counselor regarding the transfer process and lower division requirements.
