Four-Year Degree Plan: General Operations Track

The Hospitality Leadership degree at Missouri State can be completed in nine semesters, including one summer semester spent interning in the industry. However, a four-year degree plan does not take into account dual credit or transfer credit that you may bring upon admission to the University.

Make an appointment with your advisor to discuss schedules and options. Review the projected course offerings schedule before registering.

This is a model four-year degree plan. Your path to graduation may vary slightly based on factors such as college credit you earned while in high school, your choice of general education electives and placement in English and mathematics.

This plan reflects the most recent general education requirements. For information on previous requirements, visit the general education website.

The following degree plan is based on the general education program instituted in fall 2014. For the previous general education requirements, please access these Student Transition Resources.
