The mission of the College of Merchandising, Hospitality and Tourism is to transform learning, research and engagement for a global experience economy. Our vision is to lead the paradigm shift in learning and research of digitally networked, sustainable and socially responsible products and services for empowered consumers in the global economy.

Academic advising

Information regarding academic matters is available in the office of the CMHT dean. Advising for entering freshmen and transfer students is available from academic advisors in the College of Merchandising, Hospitality and Tourism. The advising staff answers questions concerning degree audits, application of transfer credit, general academic requirements, policies and procedures and application for graduation, and assists students in the selection and sequencing of courses.

Degree requirements and the University Core Curriculum

Occasionally a course required for a degree may also satisfy a requirement of the University Core Curriculum. In addition to taking the required course, a student may elect to take a different course from among those available to fulfill that core requirement; doing so, however, may add to the total number of hours required for the degree. Students who have questions regarding degree and core requirements should consult their academic advisor.

Bachelor of Science

The College of Merchandising, Hospitality and Tourism offers the Bachelor of Science degree with majors in digital retailing, home furnishings merchandising, hospitality management, merchandising, and retailing. The school also offers teacher certifications in Family and Consumer Sciences and in Hospitality, Nutrition and Food Science.

Degree audit

Each student should have a degree audit prepared by the College of Merchandising, Hospitality and Tourism advising office. This degree audit should be made by the end of the freshman year. Transfer students should have degree audits prepared during their first term/semester at UNT.

Minors

The minor requires at least 18 hours, including 6 advanced. To receive a minor in any of the Merchandising, Digital Retailing and Hospitality Management programs, a grade of C or above must be earned in each College of Merchandising, Hospitality and Tourism course completed in residence or transferred to UNT.
