Program Overview

The University of Maryland Eastern Shore's (UMES) Hospitality and Tourism Management (HTM) program at the Universities at Shady Grove (USG) is an upper division program providing full-time and part-time curriculum plans of study in hospitality management.

The program prepares students to enter middle management positions in lodging, restaurant, travel, attractions, meeting and convention and food service industries. The basic track offers a traditional two-year course of study with internship opportunities in hospitality management. To be considered for admission to the HTM program, a student must have attended an accredited institution of higher education and earned 54 or more credit hours, or earned an associate's degree from a community college with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better in all previous work.

Courses for lower division credits should include studies in the areas of hospitality management or business, social and behavioral sciences, natural or physical sciences, and arts and humanities for transfer into the HTM baccalaureate program.

Academic transcript evaluations by a recognized international credit evaluation service are required for all course work completed outside the United States.
