Hospitality Management Degrees

INTRODUCING NEW PATHS TO THE BACHELOR DEGREE!

We have developed a partnership with Salt Lake Community College UVU/SLCC Partnership Hospitality Advising Guide which allows students to complete their associates at SLCC, and continue with their bachelors online through Utah Valley University, without having to leave the Salt Lake area. In addition, our Wasatch campus, located in Heber City, www.uvu.edu/wasatch, serves students in the Heber/Park City areas, by offering a facilitated online program with in-person labs and live interaction for Hospitality Majors.
