Overview

The curriculum of the Tourism and Hospitality Management program of Johnson & Wales University will prepare you to work in all facets of the exciting, fast-paced tourism and hospitality industry, from corporate management positions in global hospitality companies to managing a tropical resort, coordinating concierge services at a high-end hotel or negotiating tours to exotic locales.

Through a term-long internship, you’ll put classroom theory to work in a real-world setting. Past locations have included international tour companies, cruise line operators, tourism offices, hotels and convention and visitor’s bureaus.

The highlight of the degree is the Familiarization (FAM) Tour — a class project during the Tour Management Operations course in which you and your team will research, negotiate schedules and implement a once-in-a-lifetime tour to an exciting destination, either in the US or abroad.

We offer a robust selection of study abroad opportunities tailored to this major, including South Africa, Spain, Australia, Belgium and Costa Rica.
