Hospitality and Tourism Management
The Bachelor of Science degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management offers a four-year program for entering freshmen and transfer students for study in one of the fastest growing professions in the world.
Each student majoring in hospitality and tourism management must complete an internship in his or her area of concentration. These are structured, professionally supervised experiences where students spend 130 hours with a company or organization’s leadership, as well as execute a curated project. In addition to the internship, students are encouraged to study abroad, participate in our mentoring program and get involved in our HTM club Hospitalented. Students take active roles in such major events as "Art in a Bottle," "Not So Scary Foods," "Airline Expo," and "HospiChallenge."
Through coursework, internships and various programs, students are exposed to professionals employed in every corner of the industry. With our ‘Skip the Line’ program, students often go directly to the interview stage for jobs or internships they are vying for.
Whether you are matriculating right after high school or from a two-year college – or coming back after many years in the workforce – our HTM Professional Program lays out its class schedule so that students can work full or part-time.
Credit for Experience
St. Joseph's University provides the opportunity for Prior Learning Assessment (PLA). This means that if you have been working in the industry, you can get credits for that experience. This may result in needing fewer classes to graduate.
Creating a schedule that fits into your busy life has never been easier. Regardless of your age, work schedule or other commitments, at St. Joseph’s, we offer flexible scheduling options — including evening classes — that can fit the busy lifestyle of any student.
