Study Away: Las Vegas
The Hospitality and Tourism Management Department has been offering Gaming and Casino Management class since 2009. This course provides an introduction to the casino industry and examines its phenomenal growth and relationship to tourism and community development.
Field trip to local casino (Mohegan Sun or Foxwoods) is part of the class curriculum. In addition to the classes throughout the semester on campus, there is a one week trip to Las Vegas during spring break in which students will tour major casino resorts, gain insights into the front-and-back of the house operations of casino resorts, and network with industry professionals. Students will also visit Hoover Dam, Grand Canyon, and fine dining restaurants in Las Vegas.
