The Master of Science program offers one of the most up-to-date and integrated blends of theory, technology and applications in the hospitality industry. Core courses will advance your understanding of this dynamic industry while exploring how to conduct research and analyze information. You will then specialize in your area of interest through a variety of elective choices and research projects. Applicants are not admitted to a particular option, nor are they asked to make a declaration at initial enrollment. Requirements for both thesis and non-thesis options are the same in the first semester; however, you should decide which option fits your needs before the second semester.
