Tourism has developed into one of the prime industries in the global economy. According to the World Travel & Tourist Council, the tourism sector supports 1 in 10 jobs on the planet.
Municipalities, heritage centers, publishers and travel organisations are increasingly looking for academically trained professionals who can creatively and critically reflect on tourism as a cultural phenomenon and who can provide tourists with enticing ideas and well-informed stories.
This master’s specialisation will train you to analyse and critically reflect on contemporary trends in tourism and heritage management, focusing on the challenges and opportunities of (for instance) dark tourism, film-induced tourism and sustainable tourism. Enriched with a long term historical perspective and developing projects with and for public and commercial partners, you will not only acquire the academic knowledge and practical skills to work in the field, but also to change the field.
