Application Packet (PDF)

The Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) in Hospitality Management program will prepare students who have completed AAS-T degrees in Accounting, Business Information Technology, Culinary, or other related areas of study for management level positions in the hospitality industry. Students will learn and explore management, marketing and human resource positions in all facets of the hospitality field, including tourism, hotel operations, restaurant management, catering, cruise ships operations, casino operations and travel.

The BAS degree will also serve rapidly expanding industry sectors such as the growing number of assisted and independent living facilities in the Puget Sound region that cater to the increasing population of retirees and the elderly. The program is unique in that it is the only public bachelor level program in hospitality management on the west side of Washington state.

The goals of the Hospitality Management Program 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.
