About the course

Master's specialisation in Tourism and Culture

Travel agencies, governments, heritage centers and publishers are increasingly looking for academically trained professionals who can creatively and critically reflect on tourism as a cultural phenomenon, and who are capable of nourishing the cultural interests of tourists with enticing ideas and well-informed stories.

Student Profile(s)


I came across the programme description of Master's in Tourism and Culture on the internet and it sounded exactly what I was looking for (a multi-disciplined programme related to tourism which is new to me whilst also connected to the Arts & Social Sciences that I had studied previously). The fact that Radboud University is a highly-ranked institution also helped me to make my decision.

First and foremost I look forward to settling into a new culture. I love these sorts of challenges; that’s why I did my Bachelor's degree away from my home country, too. I can’t wait to discover all the little aspects of Dutch life that differ from other cultures’ and that can widen my horizon.

Fun facts about myself: I love travelling and I collect globes. I'm also a movie nerd and an avid reader; in another life I would probably be a writer of an epic fantasy.

At the moment that I’m writing this we have just started the second semester of the Master’s programme. So far I really enjoy the programme and it matches my expectations. Honestly I did not think I would find a Master’s that would fit my interests so well that I’d like every aspect of it, but so far this is the case with Tourism and Culture. We first immersed ourselves in the field of tourism by discussing its history, relevant theories, current trends and challenges, and now we get to connect theory with practice by doing field work. I am happy with this hands-on approach, because not only it allows us to gain valuable practical experience in addition to academic knowledge and skills, it also helps to get an idea of the type of job you could get after graduating. Personally I find this a real added value compared with other programmes and I believe it makes this Master’s quite unique.
