College of International Relations 
The College of International Relations started out as the School of Foreign Service. It was administratively under the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS). It initially offered the Bachelor of Science in Foreign Service (BSFS) degree in School Year (SY) 1954-55, as authorized by the Department of Education under Recognition No. 35 Series of 1954. A total number of 1,000 enrollees in SY 1959-60 prompted Lyceum President Dr. Sotero H. Laurel to separate the School of Foreign Service from the CAS. Dr. Laurel became the Acting Dean of the newly separated School of Foreign Service. It was later renamed College of Foreign Service. In 2005, the College was further renamed College of International Relations (CIR).
Since its establishment, the College had in its roster distinguished and prominent professors and teaching staff that included the late President Diosdado Macapagal who became a Special Lecturer teaching Philippine Foreign Relations in 1969. Ten years later, former Ambassador to the Holy See Alberto Katigbak, in his capacity as Dean of the College, initiated revisions to the BSFS curriculum. In SY 1981-84, Dr. Jose D. Ingles became Dean of the College. He resigned in 1985 to become Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and subsequently Undersecretary of the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA). Ambassador Luis Moreno-Salcedo, Ambassador Benjamin B. Domingo and Ambassador Dolores B. Sales also served as Dean of the College before Ambassador Reynaldo O. Arcilla took over as CIR Dean in April 2006.
Soon after his assumption as Dean, Ambassador Arcilla instituted changes in the CIR curriculum to ensure its responsiveness to the changing needs of its constituents and especially designed to prepare its students for the Foreign Service Officer examination given annually by the Department of Foreign Affairs. The following subjects were introduced: Philippine Political, Economic and Socio-Cultural Conditions, Cross Cultural Communications, Multilateral Diplomacy, and Field Research in Diplomacy. New emphasis was given to the study of International Relations, World History and Civilization, and International Organizations, the core subjects of the FSO examination.
The syllabi of practically all the CIR subjects have undergone revisions to bring them up to date, including Diplomatic Practice, Introduction to International Relations, Philippine Foreign Relations, Protocol and Etiquette, and International Organizations.
To strengthen the CIR faculty, new chairpersons were appointed. Ambassador Josue L. Villa, former Philippine ambassador to Thailand and to the People’s Republic of China, joined in April 2006 as Chairperson of the Department of Politics, Government and Diplomacy, and Ambassador Alfredo Almendrala, former Philippine ambassador to Myanmar and Consul General in San Francisco, as Chairperson of the Department of International Trade, in addition to their appointment as Special Lecturer.
In addition to long-time professors Ambassador Dolores Sale, Ambassador Fortunato Oblena, and General Cesar Fortuno, new professors were added to the faculty: Ambassador Apolinario Lozada, Jr., Ambassador Phoebe Gomez; Ambassador Nestor Padalhin; Atty. Ruby Sakkam, a summa cum laude graduate of St. Scholastica College; and Mr. Gil Santos, veteran journalist and former bureau chief of Associated Press. Ambassador Aladin Villacorte, Ambassador Emelinda Lee-Pineda and Ambassador Estrella Berenguel have also joined the faculty recently. Ms. Gladys Nalangan, Mr. Genesis Brillantes and Ritchelle Alburo, all bright and superbly qualified young teachers, are also in the faculty. The foreign language teachers are also all extremely well-qualified.
Starting SY 1992-93, Japanese Language (Nihongo) was offered in addition to French and Spanish which were the original foreign languages offered to Foreign Service students. Mandarin was later offered as another foreign language in 2003-04, although it was initially offered on an experimental basis. Similarly in SY 1992-93, adjusting to the growing importance of international trade and economics in a globalizing world, International Trade was offered as another major program of the BSFS degree. Therefore, starting during the said school year, two (2) major programs were offered: BSFS major in Diplomacy and BSFS major in International Trade.
The College encouraged the establishment of College-based organizations to help promote the holistic development of its students. The College of International Relations founded the LPU UNESCO Club (est. 1998) which is officially affiliated with UNESCO, LPU UNESCO aims to promote initiative and self-awareness towards UNESCO heritage sites as well as tackling various environmental and social issues. LPU UNESCO has offered a wide array of symposia and fora to encourage the students of CIR towards global action. The LPU UNESCO Club is active in participating and promoting the events of the NAUCP (National Association of UNESCO clubs in the Philippines, Inc.) including the NICE 2013 - International Year of Water cooperation initiative and as well as the promulgation of its own independent stand-alone programs and events. Furthermore, LPU UNESCO is aiming for its accreditation with the Asia Pacific Federation of UNESCO Clubs, Centers and Associations (AFUCA) and World Federation of UNESCO Clubs, Centers and Associations (WFUCA). In addition, the Foreign Service Club (FSC) was established AY 2002-03 which aims to the development of the core values and abilities that the students of the College of International Relations inherently possess such as critical thinking skills as well as proficiency in the use of the English language. Also, the Foreign Languages Association (FLA) (est. AY 1998-99) was created as an organization for the skill improvement of students taking up a foreign language. The FLA is composed of the Nihonggo Kaiwa Kai (NKK), an association formed in 1992 by Japanese language students. The Cervantino (CC), an association of Spanish language students.
The College has forged cooperation agreements with various organizations, most notable of which are: a Memorandum of Cooperation with the United Nations Information Center in Manila; informal agreements with the DFA, the Department of Trade and Industry, the Department of Labor and Employment, World Trade Center Metro Manila, Philippine Air Lines, as well as with many other government and private establishments regarding the practicum training of BSFS students in those establishments.
The College also established the Philippines-Japan Internship Program whose first participant was Mr. Manabu Tanaka, a Japanese national who taught Nihonggo classes in the College. It organized the First Foreign Languages Song Festival in SY 2003-04 that was participated in by both Filipino and foreign students. The College also participates in active student exchange programs such as the recent Jenesys (Japan-East Asia Network of Exchange for Students and Youths) program and the ongoing Kizuna project The College helped in designing the curriculum for the Master’s Degree in Diplomacy offered in the Lyceum’s Claro M. Recto Academy for Advanced Studies in SY 2000-01. This course was later renamed Master of Arts in Foreign Service.

College of International Tourism Hospitality Management 
(Tourism and Hospitality Education - International Center of Excellence) (all programs granted Level 3 Reaccredited Status by PACUCOA)
In order to accommodate the increase in student population, and put together common resources and faculty, the College of International Hospitality Management (CIHM) was founded in November 1998. Being the first in the Philippines to use the appellation International Hospitality Management, the CIHM offered the BS HRM program, initially offered by the College of Business Administration (CBA) and the Bachelor of Science in Tourism (BST), originally under the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS).
The establishment of CIHM was introduced to the Council of Hotel and Restaurant Educators of the Philippines (COHREP), a professional organization of educators in the HRM program and to the Hotel and Restaurant Association of the Philippines (HRAP), a professional organization of hotels and restaurant industry members in 1999. In 2002, the CIHM also endeavored membership in the Tourism Educators in Schools, Colleges and Universities (TESCU). For awhile, participation was inactive after the first few years but in August 2009, the College joined the competitions sponsored by the organization with its new name, Union of Filipino Tourism Educators (UFTE) and has remained active since then. Membership and participation in these organizations have ensured that the CIHM's network and exposure in the industry is current.
Since its birth in November 1998, the College of International Tourism and Hospitality Management has transformed itself to a world-class teaching and learning facility where future professionals in various sectors of the tourism, travel, hotel and restaurant and cruise line management students are taught by seasoned teachers and industry practitioners in various methodologies of learning. Currently, the programs in the College are :
BS in International Hospitality Management (IHM)- Hotel and Restaurant Administration BS in International Hospitality Management (IHM)- Cruise Line Operations in Hotel Services BS in International Hospitality Management (IHM)- Cruise Line Operations in Culinary Arts BS in International Hospitality Management (IHM)- Culinary Arts in Kitchen Operations BS in International Travel and Tourism Management. The hospitality sector is one of the world's consistently expanding industries. Its scope includes airlines, cruise ships, travel agencies, resorts, dining, gaming and recreation establishments, local, national and international tourism programs offering a wide range of opportunities for specialist managers and entrepreneurs.
CITHM Laboratory classes are in Le Cafe, an on campus restaurant operated by students, frequented by the academic community and its guests, and a fully equipped mini hotel with a reception area, hotel suite and a housekeeping area. Aside from these, there are two mock hotel rooms that classes may use in teaching basic competencies in housekeeping. Supporting the development of skills in food and baking production, ample hands on experiences are provided in the food laboratories, one with a basic kitchen design of ten stations, and the other laboratory with an institutional kitchen design that is close to restaurant kitchen designs, with seven stations. There are also three demonstrations laboratories, with two stations, used by the food laboratory classes from time to time. A beverage laboratory complete with a functional bar is also provided for hands-on learning on various beverage preparation and service techniques. A mock bar room has also been prepared for their increasing number of classes in Bar Management and Food & Beverage Service classes. Next semester, the University is looking forward to the inauguration of the Bayleaf Hotel, an 8-storey hotel a stones throw away from the University. This will definitely allow for an opportunity for the programs in the College to be showcased and flourish further.
Students are also given industry computer applications using various programs such as Amadeus, Opera and an in-house front office software program. In lecture classes, the multimedia approach is used.
The International Practicum Training Program is done through arrangements with local agencies and its partner agencies which coordinate with various establishments in Singapore and the United States of America.
In school year 2009-2010, the College's name was changed from CIHM to CITHM or College of International Tourism and Hospitality Management, to reflect the expanding scope of the various program offerings.
