Tourism and Travel Management

This program allows you to choose which aspect of the tourism and events management industry you would enjoy most. Spend your first year studying introductory courses to
tourism and hospitality and events coordination, and in your second year, choose between two areas of specialization.

Tourism and Travel Coordinator students go on an international study tour, and Events Coordinator students travel to the United States to meet with industry professionals, so you’ll need your passport!

This is a US Federal Aid Approved program.
