We are committed to providing students with a high-quality, comprehensive hospitality management education in a liberal arts and sciences environment. Our curriculum is strengthened with practical, applied, and experiential learning opportunities in Charleston, one of the world's premier travel destinations. We want every hospitality management student to become a lifelong learner who is guest-focused, ethical, innovative, globally aware, and technologically literate with effective communication skills. In addition, they should be able to function collaboratively and comfortably in an environment characterized by diversity, uncertainty, and rapid change.
