Course Description

The Bachelor of Tourism furnishes students with a solid understanding of the tourism industry that will underpin a career in this ever-expanding industry.  Skills central to working in this field will be developed through the course, including analytical skills, critical thinking, problem solving, research and written and verbal communication skills.

Specialist fields

Specialising subjects such as Niche Tourism, Planning for Tourism, Tourism Futures and Tourism Attraction Management provide a focus to the degree. These build on a collection of foundational Tourism subjects such as Destination Concepts, Tourism Distribution Systems and Visitor Services. A range of management subjects including Marketing, Strategy and Leadership, Financial Concepts, Innovation, and Risk and Legal Issues are also included. Research skills are embedded throughout the degree in subjects such as Tourism Theories and Concepts, People and Place and Taking Responsibility for Tourism and Hospitality. Students can draw on an extensive range of specialised electives to further pursue their study interests.

Field trips and experiential learning

An important aspect of learning within the Tourism degree takes place outside the classroom. Many subjects offer students the opportunity to engage with the tourism industry with overnight and day field trips to many of Victoria’s most significant tourist destinations such as the Great Ocean Road, Phillip island Nature Park and The Yarra Valley. Students experience theory in practice and learn directly from owners, managers, experts and specialists in the field.
