This degree provides them with a comprehensive range of abilities, knowledge, and experience in order to contribute to a viable and sustainable tourism industry. We are looking for creative and motivated individuals who enjoy working with people and have a passion for the tourism industry.

This program is a degree completion program enabling students to complete years three and four of their degree on-campus through an accelerated (one year) and non-accelerated (two-year) delivery model:

  • One-year program – this delivery model is intensive and fast-paced to enable students to complete a BA in a year. Typically students completing the accelerated model are focused on completing their schooling as soon as possible, are organized and already have a good grasp of tourism.
  • Two-year program – this delivery model is slower paced and enables students to balance their school work with other commitments. The two-year program also provides students with the opportunity to complete an international exchange.
