“Tourism”  is the world’s largest and most diverse industry. Tourism is a composite of activities, services, and industries delivering travel experiences through transportation, accommodations, eating and drinking establishments, shops, entertainment, activity facilities (parks, sports, and amusement parks), historic sites, natural resources, among others.

The faculty of Recreation Management and Policy [RMP], Hospitality Management [HMGT], and Natural Resources and the Environment [NRE] Tourism [Tour] have bundled a number of courses for non-majors which, when combined with certain elective courses, can constitute a Minor in Tourism Management. Each of the courses offered for this minor are already offered in each of the three departments. These programs represent the three Colleges of College of Health and Human Services, Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics, and the College of Life Science and Agriculture.

Questions about the minor may be directed to:
Recreation Management and Policy – Dr. Bob Barcelona,
Tourism Management – Dr. Rob Robertson,
Hospitality Management – Dr. Clayton Barrows,

Approval of the Minor for Graduation, verification and sign-off must be coordinated with Dr. Rob Robertson.
