Go surfing in the Pacific and write about it. Book a dream honeymoon for someone. Entertain tourists through interpretive re-enactments. Manage a beachfront hotel. These are just a few of the cool things you can do with a degree in Hospitality and Tourism.

In UNB’s Bachelor of Applied Management in Hospitality and Tourism (BAMHT) program, you’ll combine practical experience in a community college setting with theoretical studies in UNB classrooms. You’ll study in Canada’s oldest incorporated city and gain valuable hands-on training and experience.

The BAMHT is available as a certificate and a degree, if entering from high school, or as a diploma and a degree, if entering from college.
