Hospitality & Tourism

Introduction to Hospitality and Tourism

This career cluster covers a range of careers from culinary arts and event management to lodging and travel/tourism. The Travel and Tourism pathway is linked more commonly with the Business department, where the Restaurant and Event Management pathway is linked within the Family and Consumer Sciences department. It is notable that courses taught in both departments are found in both pathways. In addition, the career and technical skill organizations Family, Community and Career Leaders of America (FCCLA), and Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) add to the learning environment by offering opportunities to develop leadership while classroom knowledge and skills are applied in authentic situations.
