Highline Community College – Hotel & Tourism Industry Management – Seattle, WA

This two-year degree program, or a one-year certificate option, is designed to provide students with both practical and theoretical training to start their career in the Hospitality/tourism Industry. Highline provides a strong background in the management side of hospitality/tourism to prepare students for entry-level management positions in the industry or continuing their education in other accredited four-year programs. Courses are completed in managing front desk operations, food and beverage operations management, cruise operations, customer service, human resources management, microcomputers, issues in world tourism, communications, international business, accounting, salesmanship, marketing, plus event, meeting and conference planning. Instruction is augmented by required internships in the greater Seattle area.

Since 1961, Highline Community College has provided higher education for greater Seattle. A non-residential campus on 80 acres overlooking Puget Sound just south of Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, there are 450 faculty in more than 45 transfer and professional/technical programs with a diverse student body of all ages, from many states and different countries.

Students have the option of transferring with their completed Associate of Applied Science degree in Hotel and Tourism Management into four-year Bachelors’ programs and beyond. These program agreements are listed at the program website and include both US and International schools.

Highline Community College offers training in an environment where:

  • Classes are small and personal attention by instructors is big.
  • Faculty concentrate on teaching, not research.
  • A very diverse population contributes to activities in and out of class and the globalization of the curriculum.
  • Computer and other support services are state of the art.
  • The natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest is a perfect environment to study hospitality and tourism.
  • The cost of education is low, and the return is high.
This is a hospitality management program, not a culinary school with some hospitality classes added.
