Hospitality Management

Program Coordinator: Doug Miller

Career Opportunities

The Hospitality Management program prepares graduates for employment in one of the fastest growing segments of the nation’s economy. The additions of several new convention centers in the state have dramatically increased the need for hotel and restaurant facilities. Students are marketable in a wide range of hospitality and tourism areas such as: hotel, resort, and motel management; event planning; restaurant and institutional food service; and a number of other areas such as cruise ship management, amusement park management, convention and visitor facilities, and gaming facilities.

The Hospitality Management program in the Woodbury School of Business offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Hospitality Management, as well as a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management, with an Emphasis in Hospitality Management. Associate in Science and Associate in Applied Science degrees are also offered.

The Bachelor of Science in Hospitality Management degree offers the possibility for a student to choose one of four tracks: General Operations; Revenue Management, Sales, and Event Planning.

Human Resource Management

Program Coordinator: Jonathan Westover

Career Opportunities

The Human Resource Management program prepares graduates for employment in one of the fastest growing fields in the nation’s economy. The State of Utah has designated what it characterizes as “Five Star” occupations—those that will have the highest growth in demand for new job openings over the next decade, one of which is Administrative Services Managers (of which HR managers are one group). Additionally, the US Department of Labor Statistics estimates that the job growth outlook for HR managers for the years from 2012 to 2022 is 13%.

In addition to the growth in HR employment, the quality of HR services is also a severe concern for many organizations. Currently, many HR departments lack crucial skills necessary for success. The Human Resource Management program will prepare students with a future-oriented, comprehensive HR education to be able to immediately contribute to the strategic goals of their prospective employers.

Programs

The Human Resource Management program in the Woodbury School of Business offers both a Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts degree in Human Resource Management, as well as a Human Resource Management minor.

 
 

Legal Studies

Program Coordinator: Teresa Conaway

Career Opportunities

For those trained as legal professionals, many rewarding opportunities exist for employment as law clerks, paralegals, legal assistants, litigation specialists, court clerks and other professions. In addition to traditional law firms, business and government at all levels hire legal professionals to meet their ever expanding law- related needs. All levels of local, state and federal government, banks, insurance companies, title companies, mortgage companies, law libraries, courts, legal service/legal aid offices, legal clinics, and law departments of special interest groups or associations readily employ non-attorney legal professionals, typically working under the supervision of attorneys. 

Paralegals may not provide legal services directly to the public, except as permitted by law.

The Minor is not approved by the American Bar Association and is not intended to prepare students to work as Paralegals.

Programs

Legal Studies students may receive a Certificate of Proficiency in Legal Studies, Associate in Applied Science in Legal Studies, an Associate in Science in Legal Studies, or a Bachelor of Science in Legal Studies. These programs are all approved by the American Bar Association.

Admission Requirements

In addition to applying for admission to Utah Valley University, Legal Studies students must meet the following admission requirements:

  • Submit Compass Test scores to a Woodbury School of Business advisor for evaluation. Applicants who score below the required level must register for additional courses in English, reading and/or math.
  • Meet with a Woodbury School of Business advisor.

Cooperative Education

Cooperative education or an internship is required for Legal Studies students. A total of eight credits may be applied toward graduation.
