Event and Tourism Management Certificate

University of North Texas
The Graduate Academic Certificate in Event and Tourism Management allows individuals with graduate degrees to add to their academic expertise to receive credentials related to teaching in higher education. It also allows professionals with a bachelor's degree to increase their knowledge in the area of event and tourism management to meet professional or academic credentials.

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.
