The Hotel, Restaurant & Gaming Management Program (HRGM) at SWOSU – Sayre is entering its third year on campus, and now a new option for existing hospitality industry workers is now available.

The program, first introduced in the spring semester of 2011, offers as an Associate of Science Degree in Hospitality Management with an emphasis in hotel, restaurant or gaming management. Coursework includes general education classes and the HRGM courses. Sixty-five college credit hours are needed to complete the program.

A new option is now available for individuals currently employed in a hospitality-type job that allows the person to complete a certificate program in HRGM. The program involves a 24 college credit hour program concentrating strictly on hospitality courses with no general education courses required.
