Seton Hill University – Bachelor of Science in Hospitality and Tourism – Greensburg, PA
Chartered by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in 1918, Seton Hill University is an innovative center for learning, offering a variety of educational opportunities to diverse populations within and beyond the Southwestern Pennsylvania region. The University’s setting is propitious to deep reflection and study. Seton Hill's beautiful 200-acre campus is located in Greensburg, PA, just 35 miles east of Pittsburgh. The thriving Greensburg cultural district is home to theaters, museums, and the symphony. The liberal arts institution produces graduates possessing the values and perspectives inherent in a Catholic education, capable of accomplishment and leadership in the workplace and their communities as their education is enriched by an emphasis on the liberal arts.

Seton Hill’s program is a unique blend of study in the liberal arts and professional emphasis on hospitality and tourism. All students will examine development of hospitality and tourism through the use of historical sites, regional cultural attractions, the arts, and existing recreational opportunities.

Students will be merging classroom study with experiential learning throughout their program–with 200 hours of practicum and 360 hours of required externship. These externships are designed to expose students to the inner workings of the hospitality business. In addition, students take a series of courses in Special Topics in Western Pennsylvania, including: Battle Grounds, Bike and Hiking Trails, Frank Lloyd Wright, Pennsylvania Conservancy Tours, and Waterways and Railways. Students in Hospitality and Tourism will be encouraged to work with Seton Hill’s National Education center for Women in Business (NECWB) in the planning of the Center’s annual meeting for women business leaders. They also will be advised to elect American history and cultural courses.

Mr. Richard Mills, Assistant Professor of Hospitality and Tourism, coordinates the program. Mr. Mills comes to Seton Hill having taught in other local programs and with considerable experience in the restaurant industry.
