Total Credits


1. Since HOSP courses are part of a closed enrollment program, students must declare a Hospitality Marketing Concentration before they can enrol in HOSP courses.  Students coming from outside Commerce and Business Administration would benefit from a knowledge of spreadsheets, marketing, and accounting before starting this specialization.

2. Because many of the HOSP courses are at the lower level (1000-2000 level), students may need to take one or more upper level courses in their MARK Courses or Concentration Electives in order to meet the requirement that at least 12 of the 24 credits in the concentration are at the upper level (3000-4000 level).

3. Students are advised to take note of pre-requisites that may be required. This information can be found on the Douglas College Course Catalogue website.
