This major is designed for students who have an interest in a career of management and supervision within the hospitality industry. The major, with a built-in business minor, has two tracks from which you might select. The Restaurant track is for students with an interest in restaurants, private clubs, institutional food service organizations, and food or equipment sales companies. The Hotel and Tourism track is directed toward hotels, motels, and the rapidly growing field of tourism management. Additionally, either track provides the necessary competencies to become a meeting and event planner. It is strongly recommended that, in addition to the required field experience, you have a part-time job in the hospitality industry, to be more marketable upon graduation.

Internship, Practica, Field Experience, Senior Internship Registration Requirements
Generally, the policy on internships, practica, field experiences, and senior internship requires registration for the experience in the quarter(s) that the requirements for the course are actually fulfilled. The only exception to this requirement is an experience that takes place over winter break, in which case registration for the course may occur during either fall or winter quarter. Be sure to work closely with your adviser/program coordinator to ensure proper registration and fulfillment.
