Master of Science in Hospitality Management and Tourism

A combination of course work, independent study, and research experience compile the Hospitality Management and Tourism graduate curriculum to provide students with a program of study designed around future career goals. Students are given the option to choose a thesis or non-thesis track to complete their degree. A non-thesis project is an alternative option for students who wish to complete a creative project focusing on the application of new or existing knowledge. It is expected that the applicant have an undergraduate degree in hospitality management and tourism or a closely related field. Travel Opportunities Graduate students annually participate in Graduate Consortiums. A consortium is held each year for the purpose of providing masters students experience in presenting their research to a regional group of peers, each student gives a 20-minute presentation highlighting their current research. Institutions who also participate include: University of North Carolina at Greensboro, University of Tennessee, Florida State University, Auburn University, and University of Georgia. Our students also submit articles for presentations at the ITAA yearly conference. In 2014, we had three student participants present their research and thesis data!
