Hotel, Restaurant, and Tourism Major, BS in Retail, Hospitality, and Tourism Management


The hotel, restaurant, and tourism major focuses on meeting the middle- and upper-level management needs of the food and lodging industry. It is a program that assists students in getting the breadth of knowledge, responsibility and creativity to meet the changing environment of complex management problems in industry. A business minor is built into the degree requirements.

The general education electives help students to sharpen their analytical, conceptual, and communications abilities. Graduates may start as management trainees in restaurants, foodservice, hotels, support industries, or in tourism operations with subsequent upward mobility into management positions.
