New master's pathways to Tourism and Hospitality in North America

05 July 2013

Pre-Master's pathways to master's degrees in tourism and hospitality offered at Widener University in Philadelphia, USA and Royal Roads University in Victoria, Canada pave the road to success.

Responding to the worldwide demand for tourism and hospitality leaders, Study Group's partner Universities in the USA and Canada have developed graduate programs to train future leaders in the Hospitality and Tourism industry.

International students that do not meet the English language entry requirement for the master's degree programs offered at Widener University and Royal Roads University can enroll through the Pre-Master's Program (PMP) offered at the International Study Center at each University. The PMP is an advanced university preparation program that trains students for the challenges of graduate level coursework in the USA and Canada. Upon successful completion of the PMP, students progress to the MA Tourism Management program at Royal Roads University, or the MS Hospitality and Tourism program at Widener University.
