CCV Announces New Hospitality & Tourism Degree Program

The Community College of Vermont will begin offering a new associate degree program in Hospitality and Tourism in the fall of 2009

The Hospitality & Tourism program prepares students for entry-level positions in the travel services and hospitality industry within the local and global marketplace. This interdisciplinary program emphasizes communication, computer systems, customer and guest services, marketing, human relations, geography, supervision and management, and global and sustainable perspectives.

Students will have the opportunity to specialize in the areas of travel and tourism or in hospitality services and will obtain professional qualifications for this dynamic industry, as well as gain a broad business and liberal arts foundation that will extend employment opportunities and contribute to career advancement.

The CCV program has several unique features including an opportunity to be paired with a mentor in the industry, development of a professional portfolio for future employment, internships, and a study abroad experience.

Graduates of the program will be qualified for positions in resorts and spas, travel agencies, airlines, country clubs, convention exposition, event and meeting planning, forests and recreational management, hotels, and many other opportunities. CCV’s associate degree also prepares students for transfer into Johnson State College’s four-year program in hospitality & tourism.
