Are you interested in tourism and sustainable development? Do you want to deepen your knowledge in tourism evaluation and planning in the perspective of sustainability?
The programme leads to a 2-year master’s degree in Tourism Studies, and provides a thorough knowledge of social, cultural, economic and environmental aspects of tourism. With a consistent focus on sustainability it provides skills in analysing, planning and evaluating tourism and tourism-related phenomena at local, global and planetary scales. The programme provides considerable opportunities for individual choices and specialisations, including practice-related projects within tourism, as well as the final thesis. It also provides the set of skills necessary for conducting independent research, reflected in the research-based final thesis.
Professor Stefan Gössling and professor Michael Hall, two world-leading tourism scholars and researchers, are actively involved in the programme.
