The Bachelor of Science in Hospitality Management prepares future leaders of Hospitality by providing dynamic class experiences, experienced professors and industry speakers, coupled with experiential learning activities. The program is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Programs in Hospitality Administration (ACPHA) 1993.

In addition to the Bachelor of Science in Hospitality Management, the department also offers two minors in Hospitality Management and Culinary Arts.

The Hospitality Management Minor provides students from other majors the opportunity to gain experience in the industry. Since the industry works with multiple disciplines in corporate settings, a minor in this field can increase the employment opportunities for non-hospitality majors.
