Hospitality & Tourism Management Certificate Program

About The Program

Hospitality and tourism have become an economic mainstay of Northern California. Importantly, the hospitality and tourism sector, which ranges from the lodging industry to the casino industry, has generated a number of employment opportunities in Northern California including a new casino in Rohnert Park. 

In response to the growing needs of talented and trained employees from the local hospitality and tourism sector, the Hospitality and Tourism Certificate Program is designed to offer an overview of hospitality and tourism management. Specifically, a variety of hospitality and tourism industry sectors such as hotels, restaurants, meetings and conventions, event management, cruise lines, and the tourism industry will be discussed in detail. 

The certificate program will help students better understand the nature of the multifaceted hospitality industry and the functions of each hospitality and tourism segment.  This course is designed to aid students toward advancement or find their career opportunities in the hospitality and tourism industry. A Certificate of Completion, endorsed by the American Hotel & Lodging Association, is awarded after successful completion of the course.
