Continue reading to find out more about this field and about hospitality management scholarships.

Degree candidates in a hospitality management degree program can expect to enroll in core courses such as management principles, human relations, marketing,  food service operations, hospitality law and ethics, geography of tourism and event planning and management. Along with your core courses, you'll most likely also face one or more internships. Here you will work in a supervised capacity in some segment of the hospitality industry for course credit. This will allow you to get valuable professional experience and also make important industry contacts.

In addition to internships, many programs offer a study-abroad option. This can be an important experience for majors in this field because of the role travel and exotic locations play in the world of hotels, tourism and hospitality. Some programs also offer concentrations for hospitality majors. Examples of these concentrations can include club and restaurant management, hotel management, casino management and service management.

The career outlook for hospitality majors is somewhat mixed. This is an industry that fluctuates as our economy fluctuates. When economic times are tough, people tend to vacation less. Also, the rise of the Internet has effected this industry through technological advancements and Web-based travel planning. Still, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts an increase in career opportunities over the coming decade. Job opportunities should be most plentiful for those willing to relocate and those with a broad familiarity with technology.
