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.
To remain active in this program you must meet the following criteria:
- Maintain overall GPA of 2.0 (C) or better in all hours attempted at Ohio University.
- Earn at least a 2.0 (C) or better in each course listed under Major Requirements.
- Earn at least a 2.0 (C) or better in each course listed for the Business minor in the Required Related Courses section.
You must successfully earn a C (2.0) in all required HCFN courses by the end of the third enrollment in each course. Other schools and departments may also limit the number of times you may retake a course. If, after your second enrollment in a HCFN course, you have not earned a C (2.0) or better, you will receive a letter from the food, hospitality, and nutrition coordinator informing you that you must obtain a satisfactory grade at the end of the next enrollment in that course or you will be dropped from the major.
