CSCC General Education Requirements: Students should choose the General Education courses for the AA degree in consultation with their academic and faculty advisors.
CSCC Degree Plan: This Sample Graduation Plan was created using the general plan of study for the Columbus State Associate of Arts degree. Students who are following a specific Bachelor’s Degree Transfer Major at Columbus State may utilize this plan for the purposes of transfer and degree planning, but should note that additional course work may be necessary to complete the Columbus State Associate of Arts Bachelor’s Degree Transfer Major beyond what is required for the Bachelor of Science in Resort and Attraction Management degree at BGSU. Additional course work completed as part of Columbus State’s Bachelor’s Degree Transfer Major may be applied as electives or where appropriate, course work toward the major at BGSU.
This program can only be completed at BGSU’s facility in Sandusky, Ohio.
To receive a degree from BGSU, you must complete 30 hours of course work at BGSU. A total of 122 credit hours with a 2.5 cumulative GPA is required to receive the Bachelor of Science in Resort and Attraction Management degree.
**Resort and Attraction Management Major: Students must earn a C or higher in MATH 1130/1146/1148, STAT 1350/1450, and ECON 2200for these courses to count toward the majorand support course work requirements at BGSU. Students must have the AA degree completed or very near completion before beginning course work in the major(if degree is not completed prior to transfer, please confer with your CSCC Arts and Science Academic Advisor in Union Hall Room 048K regarding earning it through reverse transfer).
The cohorts begin in the summer session. Students are required to take one course plus complete a cooperative work experience (co-op), the first summer. The fall semester is 10 weeks long beginning in October and ending when BGSU’s fall semester ends. The spring semester is also 10 weeks long commencing when BGSU’s spring semester begins. The senior year will resemble the junior year in timeline and format. Students can complete the BS RAAM program in two years. Students will have two paid co-op experiences at Cedar Point and/or other Cedar Fair properties during summer. In addition to for-credit co-ops, students may have the option of paid work experiences at Cedar Point and/or other Cedar Fair properties.
A student seeking admission to the Resort and Attraction Management must have a 2.0 overall GPA from all colleges attended. Renewable tuition scholarships are available to students with a 2.5 GPA or higher without regard for financial need.
