The World Is Your Classroom
From working and interning at area ski resorts like Stowe Mountain Lodge, Smugglers' Notch, and Jay Peak to more far-flung destinations like the Boston Harbor Hotel, the Dunes in South Carolina, and the Ohau, Hawaii Sheraton Hotel, JSC Hospitality and Tourism Management students get hands-on, real-world experience as part of their degree program.
A Growing Industry
Among the world's fastest growing industries, tourism and hospitality are steady employer of millions around the globe, providing exciting opportunities near and far for well- trained professionals.

Faculty connections and formal partnerships enable us to link students with top resorts, hotels, restaurants, and event management opportunities to complete internship requirements, and gain part-time and summer employment.
Work Hard, Play Hard!
But even though you'll work hard, there's lots of fun to be had, as well! Our students are out on the slopes during the winter months, not only skiing and riding over 100 days each season, but also teaching skiing and riding at Smugglers’ Notch Resort, designing, monitoring, and maintaining the terrain parks at Stowe and Jay.
The hospitality and tourism industry is wide open — and just waiting for graduates from Johnson State College’s Hospitality and Tourism Management program.
