Brief Description

The Tourism program deals with the challenges and the opportunities of contemporary tourism and hospitality. Students learn to analyze market and investment opportunities in other countries. Through a careful blending of theory and practical applications students are prepared to pursue careers in local and international tourism and hospitality organizations.

In order to receive the BS degree, the student must have fulfilled all the GER and major requirements and have completed at least 121 US credit hours with an overall G.P.A of 2.0 or better.
