See the state issued Transfer Model Curriculum (TMC) template for any further clarification regarding program requirements. The Associate in Science for Transfer in Hospitality Management is designed to provide a clear pathway to a CSU major and baccalaureate programs in Hospitality Management. The Hospitality Management major also offers a comprehensive educational approach to a career in the hospitality industry. The curriculum is designed to prepare students with both management theories and occupational job skills required to enter any segment of the industry.
