The Hotel and Restaurant Management program prepares students for a career in the hospitality field. Most graduates will enter the industry either in cooking positions or line management positions with hotels, restaurants and clubs.

Students who complete the program will have taken courses in sanitation, dining room fundamentals, business math, food preparation, marketing, purchasing, hotel services, menu planning and hotel administration.

These courses are management-designed and offer the student practical knowledge of either the restaurant management industry or the hotel management industry, depending on the student’s chosen concentration.

Semesters 1, 2 & 3 must be completed before entry is allowed into semesters 4 & 5 to receive the AAS degree. Students planning on transferring to a four-year college should see an advisor or the program chairperson before registration.
