The Tourism Management minor prepares students to specialize in tourism service management and sustainable destination development relative to their careers. The minor provides students with the necessary skills for entrepreneurial success within the tourism industry. Exciting career opportunities exist in resorts, theme parks, special events, convention and visitors bureaus, regional planning, urban renewal, ecotourism, outdoor adventures, sport tourism and cultural tourism. The program provides students with knowledge, skills and abilities through coursework and hands-on, field-based experiences.
Admission to a minor is open to students declared in a bachelor’s degree, the A.A.B. or A.A.S. degree or the A.T.S. degree (not Individualized Program major). Students declared only in the A.A. or A.S. degree or the A.T.S. degree in Individualized Program may not declare a minor. Students may not pursue a minor and a major in the same discipline.
Students declared in the Recreation, Park and Tourism Management major may not declare the Tourism Management minor.
To declare this minor, students must have attempted a minimum 12 credit hours at Kent State and earned a minimum 2.250 overall Kent State GPA. Students who have not attempted 12 credit hours at Kent State will be evaluated for admission based on their high school GPA for new students or transfer GPA for transfer students. Transfer students who have not attempted 12 credit hours of college-level coursework at Kent State and/or other institutions will be evaluated based on both their high school GPA and college GPA.
