Unravelling, and understanding, the links between the many different components of the systems that comprise tourism is the focus of this unit. The unit will introduce you to the global dimensions of tourism, and help you to understand the scale and dynamism of tourism from local, regional, national and global perspectives. Areas of study include understanding tourism as a series of systems, evaluating the impacts of tourism and tracing the development of tourism from an elite to a mass activity and then to special interest tourism. Specific focus is given to the business of tourism, including major industry sectors.
