The University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV), offers a baccalaureate degree in social science studies. This degree completion program is intended primarily for students who have completed, or nearly completed, the equivalent of the first 2 years of college. Students earning this baccalaureate degree obtain a broad, inter-disciplinary understanding of many issues addressed by research in the social sciences. In addition, UNLV offers a broad range of liberal arts and education classes, as well as courses in areas of interest to the hospitality industry: casino management, hotel administration, conventions, and tourism. These classes are available completely online and may be taken by any adult anywhere. While all of the courses count in the undergraduate program at UNLV, they may also be useful for individuals in the hospitality industry who want to acquire competency in particular areas without enrolling in a degree program.

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
