UMES Hospitality and Tourism Management Program Expands to Hagerstown


Beginning in the Spring of 2018, the University of Maryland Eastern Shore will offer its hospitality and tourism management program at University System of Maryland Hagerstown. This bachelor’s degree program will prepare students to enter middle management positions in the lodging, restaurant, travel, attractions, meeting and convention, and food service industries. The program chair, Dr. Ernest Boger said, “This is not a culinary arts program, but rather it is about the “business of hospitality.” The program will be housed in a newly renovated campus Hospitality Center, which will include a teaching kitchen and dining room. Applications are being accepted now. Prospective students who are interested in learning more can contact Tiffany Ahalt, hospitality center coordinator, at or 240-522-7552.
