The Recreation, Parks, and Tourism major prepares students to pursue careers in leisure services management, therapeutic recreation, and commercial recreation, and prepares students to pursue graduate study. The Department is committed to offering an academically challenging program of undergraduate education coupled with a solid foundation of a liberal arts education. The program has been accredited by the NRPA/AALR Council on Accreditation since 1981.
The Hospitality and Tourism Management major prepares students for a variety of management positions in the hotel, restaurant, and travel and tourism fields. Students first complete a set of courses that gives them a broad foundation in all areas of hospitality and tourism management. Students select one of two concentrations: hotel and restaurant management or travel and tourism management. All students complete a business minor.
