San Diego State University, Hospitality and Tourism Management Program
With the San Diego region as a living laboratory, San Diego State University is redefining the traditional hotel and restaurant school. The curriculum reflects the depth and breadth of the industry in the area, which includes high rise hotels, luxury resorts, attractions like Sea World and the Zoo, and industries that support tourism such as shuttles and parking services.

Hospitality and Tourism Management is an interdisciplinary major that culminates in a bachelor of science degree offered jointly by the SDSU College of Business Administration and the College of Professional Studies and Fine Arts. The program provides students with a solid undergraduate program that emphasizes basic business management principles and their specific application to the hospitality industry.

The curriculum complements academics with practical experience. Students first take business courses such as accounting, marketing, business law, human resources, finance, organizational development, and business communication. Students then select a concentration in one of four career fields: hotel operations and management; restaurant operations and management; attractions, events and convention management; or global tourism. They also complete an internship working for a full-service hotel as well as a senior project internship related to their field of interest.
