(15 credit hours)

The minor in Tourism and Special Events aims to provide students with “real world” practice and theory within the discipline. Students will be armed with tools to succeed in the field, understand current theories, and be exposed to professionals to formulate relationships with practitioners that can lead to internships and job placements. Courses such as Sustainable Tourism, Tourism Marketing and Promotion, and Experiential Tourism and Events provide opportunities to learn about emerging trends, while courses such as Commercial Recreation, Special Events, and Professional Advancement in Tourism provide opportunities to draw from related fields of business and marketing while targeting learning to the application of tourism. There are diverse career opportunities in this area. Students are given flexibility to choose 4 of the required 5 classes that comprise the minor, offering opportunities for them to tailor their experience to ultimate goals. The minor is open to all students with an overall GPA of 2.5 or higher. Students majoring in Recreation, Parks, and Tourism are not eligible. Contact the coordinator of the Tourism and Special Events program for more information.
