Abstract Previous research has identified several models which higher education institutions might adopt in approaching the delivery of food and beverage (F&B) studies. This study investigates the various models adopted in the delivery of Australian hospitality degree programs. A two phase research design is employed. An initial time-series institutional case study informed the second phase, an Australian nation-wide survey of all hospitality degree programs. The findings suggest that overall F&B content is given space in most hospitality curricula but that there is a complexity of models apparent. A level of inconsistency and several potential gaps in relation to F&B program content have been observed. Given F&B is an integral component of hospitality these findings may inform industry stakeholders, hospitality educators and undergraduate program directors. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
