The ability to create a welcoming environment is vital to just about every industry, and the hospitality industry itself offers wide-ranging opportunities for you to welcome successful interactions and experiences wherever your career takes you.

South’s Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) in Hospitality Management will provide you with the knowledge, skills, and tools to leverage your associate degree in Accounting, Business Information Technology, Culinary, or other related areas of study. Management-level positions in the hospitality industry require professionalism in not just management, but marketing, operations, legal issues, and human resources. You will be prepared to enter positions in all facets of the hospitality field around the world - including tourism, hotel operations, restaurant management, catering, cruise ship operations, casino operations, and travel.

The Hospitality Management BAS degree will open doors for you in rapidly expanding industry sectors such as the growing number of assisted and independent living facilities, destination spas and resorts, corporate hospitality, and event production.

So, welcome to South and Hospitality Management – whether you’re just getting started or already on your career path, our BAS will help take you to the next level!

The goals of the HMG BAS are to:

  1. Remove roadblocks preventing students holding technical associate of applied science transfer degrees (A.A.S.-T) from using those credits to complete a bachelor’s degree;
  2. Increase opportunities for students and incumbent hospitality industry workers in South Seattle College’s (South) service area to attain management-level responsibilities and earn higher lifelong wages through baccalaureate-level training and education;
  3. Serve the region’s highly diverse population, building on South’s demonstrated success in offering outstanding education and economic opportunity to students of color, English as a Second Language/English Language Learner (ESL/ELL) students and students who are first in their families to attend college;
  4. Address significant unmet industry demand for skilled and diverse hospitality management personnel in the Seattle-King County metropolitan area and in Washington state;
  5. Contribute to the attainment of state higher education and regional economic development goals in one of Washington’s leading high-growth industry sectors.
