Tourism is a thriving international industry with great employment opportunities within a variety of sectors, from travel and marketing to public and voluntary. As travel and business opportunities increase in the Spanish speaking world the ability to speak Spanish is a skill increasingly in demand by organisations.

Our cutting-edge degree combines theoretical and practical study with a focus on global trends and current development in international tourism. The theory element offers a distinctive social science perspective covering topics such as sustainability, cultural tourism, and tourism in developing countries. The practical component offers a range of exciting placement and field trip options, enabling you to build professional industry experience, in the UK and abroad, while you study.

Along with knowledge and skills highly relevant within the tourism industry you will also learn Spanish as part of your degree through specialist classes with an expert language tutor. Spanish is the fourth widest spoken language in the world and these additional language skills will help you to get ahead in an international tourism career, with great support offered by our academics and a study abroad year in a Spanish speaking country.
