Hospitality Management degree approved at Terra

The Ohio Board of Regents has officially accepted an updated Hospitality Management degree program at Terra State Community College.

“The hospitality program was designed with both the student and prospective employer in mind,” said Dennis Gnage, an instructor who assisted in developing the program. “Employers expressed the need for candidates with post-secondary degrees in hospitality and food service disciplines so their new hires can hit the ground running instead of needing weeks of basic training.”

In researching for the program, Gnage consulted with area employers and formed an advisory board that will continue to guide the program.

The hospitality program is designed to build a strong foundation in supervision, food, beverage, sanitation, management and food, beverage and labor controls. Laboratory courses for both “front and back of the house” will be offered, with an emphasis on hands-on, practical application balanced with a blend of courses in hospitality management and theory.

Students will receive hands-on training in:
• Lodging, front desk, auditing, food and beverage, housekeeping and maintenance;

• Event planning, set up and serving;

• Restaurant operations – kitchen management and operation, scheduling, directing and training.

The emphasis will be on management, not culinary, even though there will be basic food labs in which students will learn common terminology and techniques.

Building G on the Terra State campus will be renovated into a state-of-the-art facility for the program. College officials expect the new building to open in 2013.

Program graduates can pursue careers in hotel, restaurant or marina management; assistant food and beverage management; as dining room supervisors, guest services managers, banquet sales coordinators, event planners, front desk supervisors, housekeeping supervisor and more.

The program is also designed for students who want to transfer to a four-year college or university.

Enrollment opens in January. For more information, call Gnage at 419-559-2120.
