Purpose of the Program

The Bachelor of Tourism and Hospitality Management program provides you with critical and broad ranging studies that enable you to enter graduate positions in Tourism and Hospitality administration and management. To achieve this, you will be exposed to the critical evaluation of knowledge underpinning local and international tourism strategies and practices, regulatory bodies and frameworks, management strategies and skills, cultural studies as well as crisis and risk management. 

The courses are taught via face to face delivery methods and require student attendance on campus. The methods will include tutorial discussions, group work, problem-based learning, guest lectures, case studies, role-playing, simulations, shadowing managers, etc. You will also be exposed to Work Integrated Learning approaches and curriculum that includes an internship program providing you with the opportunity to apply your knowledge and analysis techniques directly as you engage and work with professionals in the industry.
