Introduction to Hospitality & Tourism Management is open to HT majors and non-majors. It explores the broad scope of the industry and gives undecided students the opportunity to explore the field. It is suggested that students take the introductory course in the fall of their freshman year.
Sophomore, junior, and senior-level courses are designed for HT majors only.
