This major is designed for students who have an interest in a career of management and supervision within the hospitality industry. The major, with a built-in business minor, has two tracks from which you might select. The Restaurant track is for students with an interest in restaurants, private clubs, institutional food service organizations, and food or equipment sales companies. The Hotel and Tourism track is directed toward hotels, motels, and the rapidly growing field of tourism management. Additionally, either track provides the necessary competencies to become a meeting and event planner. It is strongly recommended that, in addition to the required field experience, you have a part-time job in the hospitality industry, to be more marketable upon graduation.
