sample url imageCentral Texas College was the first college in the United States to offer an undergraduate degree program in hospitality management which could be completed solely online.

Not only does this allow us to access students from across the world, but we are also able to attract faculty with the highest experience and credentials to teach these classes.

The hotel, restaurant and beverage industry does not allow for managers/employees to be allotted the same time period off each week for an 8- to 16-week period to complete college courses in the traditional classroom setting.

By taking classes online, a student can manage school and schedule it around peak work periods. All courses are self-paced and, depending on an individual's experience level, the course can be completed in as short a time as three weeks or as long as 16 weeks.

Each student will need to choose a degree field. Check out this website to determine which online program you wish to pursue. The primary fields are hotel management and food and beverage management. We also have an online certificate program in food service management, targeting our military food service personnel. Each candidate, upon successful completion of all requirements, will earn an Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree.
