The UWF Department of Global Hospitality and Tourism Management

The Global Hospitality and Tourism Management (GH&TM) program at the University of West Florida offers a learning environment where students are challenged and encouraged to pursue unique, individual career goals in the hospitality industry while attaining the foundation necessary to be successful in the workplace.

The Department of Global Hospitality and Tourism Management is located in the College of Business.  Classes are taught at both the main campus in Pensacola and the Fort Walton Beach campus; and are now being offered at Gulf Coast State College in Panama City, Fla. The program’s proximity to beautiful Florida Gulf Coast tourist communities, such as Pensacola Beach, Destin, Perdido Key, and Fort Walton Beach, provide a living laboratory where students can apply, first-hand, the knowledge and theories they learn in the classroom.

Students in GH&TM have a strong management and problem-solving orientation that is balanced with operational skills, all of which are necessary for career progression to leadership positions in the hospitality and related professions.
