Minor in Tourism and Hospitality

The Minor in Tourism and Hospitality provides an overview of tourism, or travel for leisure, culture, and other non-work purposes, and hospitality, the provision of services to travelers. Students design their own program of study that reflects personal interests and career goals. The Minor in Tourism and Hospitality is an excellent complement to majors that study cultures, languages, history, international relations, business, and the environment.

The minor requires completion of at least five TAH courses (minimum 15 credits) with a grade of C- or better in each course. At least one course must be 300-level or higher. Students may complete one three-credit TAH internship, practicum, or field course as part of the minor. One course (three credits) may overlap with the student’s major, and up to six credits may be courses from other institutions that transfer as TAH courses at USM.
