Hospitality and Tourism Management

The program applies the general principles of the business, management, and advanced management cores to a specific industry. Close ties with the Polynesian Cultural Center provide students in this program with a unique opportunity to study and analyze one of the most successful tourist destinations in the world. To earn a bachelors degree, students complete a departmental mini-core, then pursue a program track in either Hospitality Management or Tourism Management.

The department also offers a minor designed to allow students in other disciplines across campus to explore an industry where their skills and interests might be well utilized.

All Hospitality and Tourism majors are required to complete an internship or other practicum of 1-6 credit hours. An internship will provide "real world" experience that will augment the student's major course studies and will enhance the student's career opportunities.
