their general studies program with a specific concentration/minor. Free electives also allow students who have chosen a concentration/minor to complete any prerequisites that may be required for courses in that program. The number of free electives also gives students the flexibility that is sometimes required for students to participate in a study abroad experience. With the assistance of an academic advisor students may use the free electives to create an interdisciplinary major for themselves.

B.S. in General Studies Contact: Ms. Patricia Gerard The purpose of the B.S. in General Studies is to serve those students who want a broad general education without an in-depth study in one discipline area. The major consists of four separate sections. The first section of 48 credits is the university core. The core provides the broad general education that the university curriculum committee believed should be the foundation for all SNHU students. The second section of the general studies major is the concentration/minor. This can be any 18 credit concentration or minor listed in the School of Business. The third component of the general studies major consists of 24 credits of interdisciplinary studies. These interdisciplinary studies will be delivered in four six-credit courses at the 300/400 level. Each course will be team taught by two faculty members from two different disciplines. Those faculty will choose a topic and present it from their specific disciplinerelated points of view. The interdisciplinary studies courses may use faculty within a specific school (for example, literature and art in early 20th century America or organizational leadership in marketing organizations). These interdisciplinary courses also may consist of faculty from separate schools (for example, a course on the development of business and ethics during the industrial revolution or the study of philosophy and its relationship to American elementary education). The purpose of these interdisciplinary studies component is twofold. One, it continues the university’s emphasis on learning communities by involving faculty and students studying a topic for six hours a week during a semester. Two, interdisciplinary studies helps further develop students’ critical thinking abilities by having them learn from faculty who approach the study of a subjective from the perspective of different academic disciplines. Depending on where students are in the completion of their degree, they may replace any of the interdisciplinary courses with 6 credits of free electives. The final section of the general studies degree consists of ten courses that serve as free electives for students. These free electives serve multiple purposes. First, they enable the student to explore different discipline areas, an exploration that may lead to their changing their general studies major to a specific discipline major or it may lead them to continue

In summary, the BS in General Studies provides students a broad education that permits them the freedom to take coursework in multiple academic disciplines but, at the same time, allows them to earn a concentration or minor in one area of study.

Hospitality Business Program Department Chair: Dr. Ravindra Pandit, C.H.E. The hospitality industry is one of the largest and the most dynamic of industries globally. In many countries, the hospitality industry is the only industry and the driver of the local economy. The language of hospitality is universal and hospitality education is helping prepare professionals to lead, grow and sustain this industry. The word hospitality has many connotations such as welcome, warmth, kindness, generosity, but in the end hospitality is a business and has the same critical success factors as any other business.
