The purpose of the 12-hour graduate certificate is to offer professionals in hospitality, tourism or other allied industries the opportunity to build skills and knowledge in critical analysis and subject content.
Upon advisement of the Graduate Coordinator, the student will complete 12 hours of content-based courses in the area of specialization. All 12 hours must be completed through UNT and with CMHT (CMHT and HMGT) courses. All certificates may be completed with 100% online courses. Some Certificate programs have resident campus course options.
Continuing from G.A.C. to M.S. in Hospitality Management
Certificate students who choose to continue in a graduate degree program are required to meet all the requirements of that specific degree program. Students in the G.A.C.
