Undergraduate Programs

Request Information

Are you ready to be challenged and inspired? To gain a breadth, as well as depth of knowledge? Our four-year, full-time bachelor’s degree programs are designed for all of the above. Students can choose from two majors: Hospitality Administration or Hospitality and Communication.

Take a moment to explore the wide range of courses available to you at SHA. Specialization courses introduce you to the hospitality industry, while foundational courses give you an edge in critical skills like writing, research, and analysis. SHA elective courses let you explore everything the field has to offer, from fine wines to destination marketing. And remember: you can also pursue other interests by choosing elective courses from BU’s other prestigious schools and colleges.

SHA does not accept first year applicants. Students admitted to Boston University will be eligible to transfer into SHA upon completion of the pre-requisite SHA HF100 or HF150 courses. Please contact mkcarven@bu.edu upon being admitted to begin this process.

Design your education program

Here’s another advantage of attending a renowned research institute. To boost your career prospects or simply explore other interests, undergraduate students can earn a dual degree or choose a hospitality concentration or minor in any other school or college at BU.

The Dual Degree Program

Graduating from Boston University with more than one degree not only enhances your credentials, it can give you a career-launching advantage in a specialized area of the hospitality industry. A second degree could give you an edge over other job applicants.

The Dual Degree Program (DDP) allows you to graduate with diplomas from two BU schools or colleges at the same time. You can apply after your first year at SHA, but no later than the middle of junior year. You’ll need to earn at least 160 credits with a minimum grade point average of 2.0.

DDP Requirements:

  • 2.0 cumulative GPA
  • 160 credits
  • Approval from both colleges involved
  • A well-thought-out, two-page statement of intent
