Course summary

Overview:

An MSc is an internationally respected qualification. In one year you will develop a strategic understanding of all aspects of tourism and events management.

This Masters course brings together a social science approach to tourism and events with the development of job-related skills and employability. You’ll complete theoretical modules ‘Tourism Concepts and Issues’ and ‘Critical Theories and Methods for Tourism’, and in the final phase of the course you’ll complete a major project personal to your interests and career aspirations.

Course structure:

You will be taught by passionate academics who produce world-leading research. A typical week for you will include lectures, seminars, study visits and group work. These are supported by a range of guest speakers from diverse academic and industry backgrounds.

Compared to an undergraduate course, you will find that this Masters course requires a higher level of independent working. Your progress will be assessed by essays, exams, presentations, portfolios of evidence and a dissertation.

Employment:

An MSc is a challenging qualification which requires significant dedication. Employers recognise its worth, and the value that an MSc-qualified tourism and events leader can bring to their organisation. This Masters course equips you with the skills and understanding to progress rapidly in tourism and events management. Potential employers include events management companies, conference and exhibition centres, events venues, hotel and resort management, attractions and museums, destination marketing agencies and tourism companies.
