What Can You Do With an AS-T in Hospitality?

Transfer to a Cal State University. Your credits are guaranteed to go with you and apply efficiently to your bachelor’s degree. Choose your major (and maybe a minor?) based on the CSU you select and your long-term goals in this industry:

  • Business Administration
  • Experience Industry Management
  • Hospitality & Tourism Management
  • International Business
  • Recreation Administration
  • Sustainable Tourism Management

After you earn your four-year degree, your career may take you into roles such as:

  • Hotel manager
  • Restaurant manager
  • Spa director
  • Theme park manager
  • Guest operations manager
  • Tour director
  • Catering director

If you go to work right after completing your AS-T, consider these entry-level hospitality roles:

  • Wedding consultant
  • Catering assistant
  • Event planner
  • Front office assistant manager
  • Gaming host
  • Housekeeping director
  • Marketing and public relations specialist
  • Sous chef

Go Places

The hospitality industry is growing steadily and diversifying. Niche travel and dining, escape rooms, small group experiences, eco-tourism—these adventures are also businesses, with teams working to promote, deliver, and manage the venture. Find your place and build your career. It can take you anywhere in the world.

Transfer to a Different University

The AS-T gives you guaranteed transfer to the CSU system. You can transfer to a non-CSU, too. If you have your eyes set on another university, work with both your Copper Mountain counselor and an advisor from your chosen four-year. They’ll help you pick the CMC classes that make your transfer smoother and more efficient.
