Hospitality and Tourism

Kindness. Open-mindedness. Welcoming. These are all terms used in defining hospitality. Students in hospitality and tourism programs understand the importance of these characteristics and much more. They study management, marketing, and operations of their segment of the industry: lodging; restaurants and other food services; recreation, amusements, and attractions; and travel-related services.

We believe that regardless of where students go in hospitality and tourism, they need to understand business processes that undergird their industry-specific knowledge and skill. We want students to leave our programs with a realistic understanding of business, employer expectations, and desired/required attitudes.
