Travel-Tourism & Hospitality Management
Bachelor of Science (B.S.) Degree
The Travel-Tourism & Hospitality Management bachelor’s degree program provides a broad-based option for students incorporating the hotel, travel/tourism and food segments of the hospitality industry with special focus given to travel/tourism.
Upon completion of the program, graduates are expected to demonstrate the ability to
- Apply technical and management skills in a global environment.
- Demonstrate personal accountability, ethical behavior and professionalism in a global environment.
- Demonstrate creativity, critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
- Identify and communicate long-range vision and strategy.
This bachelor’s degree program places an emphasis on tourism as the glue that holds the industry together — especially in course offerings and the term-long experiential learning program. The highlight of the program is the Familiarization (FAM) Tour, a class project to a domestic or international destination. Students are required to research, budget, plan, promote and implement the tasks of a tour escort and tour guide. The program is also enhanced by mini-FAM tours and site visits.
Graduates of the program may be employed in all industry segments due to its more generalized curriculum, but the emphasis on travel/tourism will provide specific career options in destination marketing organizations such as CVBs and tourism offices, resorts, tour operators, travel industry suppliers such as airlines, cruise lines or ground transportation, and various international operators. Students can further customize their degree by selecting a concentration option specific to their area(s) of interest.
