Semester 1
This immersive degree offers a unique learning experience, where you’ll gain real-world understanding of contemporary issues in tourism, an understanding of managing tourism in sites of environmental and cultural value and acquire skills to envisage and grow tourism enterprises.

The University will utilise its strong industry connections and enable experiential learning opportunities to ensure your learning and work readiness is maximised. Learn through experience, including on-site learning, industry encounters, and critical reflections on your own tourist experiences.

Tasmania will be used as a living laboratory for this course; the 7 UNESCO World Heritage listed properties within the island state, plus signature Tasmanian businesses such as Mona will be used as case studies for learning.

You will also develop skills to manage the opportunities, complexity and sensitivities that arise when culture, environmental values and creativity intersect with business development and be equipped with entrepreneurial and leadership tools, frameworks and an attitude to work in a fast changing and competitive industry, disrupted constantly by technology and an ever-changing market.
