About the Department
The Department of Hospitality and Tourism Management is committed to providing students a high-quality hospitality management education in a liberal arts environment supported by a progressive series of practical, applied, and experiential learning opportunities at one of the world’s premier destinations. The program inspires every hospitality management student to become a lifelong learner who is guest-focused, ethical, innovative, globally aware, computer-fluent, and an effective communicator. In addition, each student should be able to function collaboratively and comfortably in an environment characterized by diversity, uncertainty, and rapid change.
The Department of Hospitality and Tourism Management allows students to focus their courses of study in hotel and resort management, food service management, and events management. In addition, students may emphasize sales and marketing, human resource management and general management in their coursework and internships.
