BSc (Hons) Tourism Management gives you a fundamental understanding of theories relevant to successful tourism management. You will develop skills appropriate to the industry as well as future academic study.
You will be taught by passionate staff who produce world-leading research. A typical week for you will combine lectures, seminars, tutorials, open and resource-based learning, and supervised project and group work.
There is an emphasis on developing your independent study skills, and you will also have opportunities to present ideas and information to other students and also develop concepts and analyses within groups.
Your progress will be assessed with coursework, projects, presentations, practical exercises, time-constrained and multiple-choice examinations and the major project.
In your final year, you will specialise in your chosen area of tourism management. This could be mass tourism, e-tourism, sports tourism and mega events, urban tourism or ecotourism. Your academic study will be linked even more intensively with employability, so that when you graduate you’ll be ready to step directly into the workplace.
