Overview

This program aims to meet the professional development needs of graduates with an interest in tourism. It is designed so that students can focus on areas of special interest or undertake a broadly based program of study.

Specialist areas of study include:

  • festival and event design and management
  • heritage tourism
  • interpretation of natural and cultural environments.

The general program of study allows students to choose topics from any of these streams to meet individual interests and needs, as well as topics relevant to a wide range of workplaces in the tourism sector.

The program aims to provide students with an increased level of theoretical knowledge, research skills and practical skills necessary for understanding issues in tourism and applying that knowledge in ways that match needs and emerging trends within the sector.

The Master of Tourism provides students with a broad understanding of their role in the field of tourism, both in Australia and worldwide. It will enable them to implement research concepts in their tourism field and examine how they reflect the arts, culture and/or heritage of a place. The course aims to produce graduates who will act ethically as professionals within their specialised field in the tourism industry and who have effective independent research and analysis skills in a variety of disciplines. It also aims to develop a framework for tourism management with the opportunity to apply this framework to specific case studies both on and offshore.

This program provides an articulated pathway in postgraduate studies in tourism with exit points at Graduate Certificate, Graduate Diploma and Masters level.
