2018-2019 Undergraduate Catalog

Hospitality and Tourism Management

The vision for the Hospitality and Tourism Management (HTM) major is to develop future hospitality leaders with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to acquire entry-level management positions with prestigious hospitality firms.

This curriculum builds upon the strong foundation of the university’s liberal arts core and the School of Management’s business core curriculum (accounting, finance, and marketing).  At Cal Lutheran, students will develop not only industry specific skills but also managerial abilities that will serve them well in their career.

Beyond contributing to and endorsing the curriculum’s development, industry executives will also be supporting the HTM program by providing experiential learning opportunities through internships and course collaboration. While future graduates of the Hospitality and Tourism program will have numerous career options, graduates will be well positioned for careers in lodging operations, food and beverage management, and travel and destination marketing.

This is a new major with the first 100 level courses being offered in Fall 2018.
