General Information

What are some of the highlights and features to know about this major? The Hospitality & Tourism Management department is part of the college of business and our curriculum is designed for “business” majors. We encourage and provide lots of opportunities to engage outside of the classroom with clubs, networking, workshops and internships.
When should I first meet with my major department? The HTM department conducts a “mandatory” orientation the first week of classes in the fall and spring for all freshman and transfer students.
How will I be assigned to a major advisor and how do I contact them? The HTM faculty is available for advising during their regularly scheduled office hours throughout each semester. We encourage regular visits between HTM students and HTM faculty.
Where can I find information about major advising?
Does this major require any pre-work from me before I attend orientation or register for classes? Not applicable.
What should I do if my major core and/or prequisite courses are full? Please see a HTM faculty member who can review your course roadmap and devise a plan to graduate in a timely fashion.
Is there anything else I need to know about starting in this major? Students should be aware that the College of Business provides advising in BUS 112.
