Travel and Tourism

Associate in Business Degree

 

Curriculum Code: 0229  (Effective Fall 2004 - Summer 2009)

 

Travel agents, tour escorts, cruise line and airline personnel plan trips and arrange lodging, modes of travel, and travel services for customers. They may specialize in foreign or domestic service, individual or group travel, or a specific geographical area.  Travel customer service representatives are employed by airlines, cruise lines, tour companies, railroads, and tourism bureaus to provide travel information and arrange accommodations for tourists. They answer questions, offer suggestions, verify arrival/departure times, and provide literature on trips, excursions, sports events, concerts, and plays. Travel, tour, cruise and airline personnel may confer with customers by phone or in person, or plan trips for them in response to mail requests.  Not all courses in this program transfer to all colleges.  Students planning to transfer should see an academic advisor or counselor before enrolling in any course.
