MA in Tourism and Culture

About This Masters Degree

Course Description

In recent decades, tourism has developed into one of the prime industries in the global economy. Travel agencies, governments, heritage centres and publishers are increasingly looking for academically trained professionals who can creatively and critically reflect on tourism as a cultural phenomenon, and who promise to nourish the growing cultural interests of tourists with enticing ideas and well-informed stories. How do travel guides anticipate and shape our tourist gaze? What does it mean to travel in the footsteps of Vincent van Gogh, Marco Polo or Harry Potter?
How can B&B’s creatively deploy local cultural heritage? By combining historical, literary, art-historical and other disciplinary approaches, and by integrating academic research with practical challenges, this brand new Master’s specialisation will make you an academic expert in cultural tourism.

Tourism and Culture is a brand new specialisation of the Master's programme in Cultural Studies and will start in September 2017.
