Industry Field Study Requirement:
All students majoring in hospitality administration must have practical industry experience in order to be approved for graduation. Each student is given the opportunity to apply career objectives and gain exposure to the work environment as it actually exists in the hospitality industry. This experience assists in developing professional work habits, provides for a smooth transition into full-time employment, helps develop self-confidence, and provides exposure to the different components of the hospitality industry. Students who have full-time jobs in non-hospitality occupations do not have to quit their jobs; however, in order to satisfy the requirements for the work-study experience, students are advised to begin working part-time in an adviser-approved hospitality position as soon as possible.
A required noncredit course, HADM 4900 – Hospitality Field Experience, is offered each semester to assist students in meeting this work-study requirement. Students must register for this course during their senior year.
Recommended Elective Courses:
Hospitality majors may choose from a variety of Robinson courses as electives. Hospitality courses including event management, hotel management, restaurant management, private club management, airport and airline management, and other industry-specific courses may also be selected.
