It seems like the world is getting smaller. It may be because the internet and social media make people feel more connected. It may be because international travel has become easier and more affordable. It may be that younger generations are more interested in adventures and exploring the world. Or, more likely, it is a combination of all of these things. Whatever the reason, the hospitality and tourism industry is growing thanks to our shrinking world.

With the LCCC Tourism program, you can learn the necessary skills to take advantage of these opportunities. The program provides well-rounded instruction in customer service, sales, marketing, law, event planning, operations management, cultural diversity, and geography.

It offers a one-year certificate as well as Associate Degrees. Of course, you may choose to further your education beyond LCCC through our University Partnership or transfer programs.

Getting started while you’re still in high school

You don’t have to wait to graduate from high school to start earning college credit.

The College Credit Plus program offers you an opportunity to earn college credit as early as seventh grade. Courses are frequently offered on-site at local high schools. Students may also have the option of taking LCCC classes online or on our campus. Classes taken through CCP count for both high school and college credit and are FREE for most students. 

The MyUniversity program, a unique partnership between LCCC and area high schools, provides a pathway for high school students to the full college experience – starting in high school!
