Comments about Bachelor of International Tourism - On Campus - Bedford Park - South Australia

  • Objectives
    This industry-focused course examines the issues, trends and approaches in the global tourism industry. Its objective is to promote a critical and theoretical understanding of tourism as a global phenomenon and apply that understanding to international, national, regional and local circumstances by examining diverse industry practices in a range of contexts. There are strong links to the tourism industry throughout the degree and students complete an industry practicum and an industry-linked research project as part of the course. The course combines academic analysis of trends in worldwide tourism and its impact with practical contact with selected local, regional, national and international aspects of tourism. It covers issues in tourism development and planning that allow for the retention of the authentic character of a place and investigates the approaches required to best deal with opportunities and challenges presented in global tourism. Policy, strategic development and global best practice for sustainable tourism are also covered. Students may choose to follow a non-specialised stream in the Bachelor of International Tourism, or may choose to specialise in Cultural Tourism or in Festival and Event Design and Practice. There is a common core that all students will complete. Learning outcomes Graduates will help to shape developments in a sustainable and responsible international cultural tourism industry. Graduates will be able to: * apply the appropriate knowledge, understanding, skills and attitudes for successful careers in the field of international tourism; * explain the concepts of tourism in an international context, and demonstrate a broad understanding of its role in relating to the arts, culture, environment and/or heritage of a place; * demonstrate a broad understanding of international trends in tourism; * communicate in a professional manner through analytical reports and effective verbal presentations in a variety of disciplines and collaborative situations; * apply both theoretical and practical knowledge and skills to specific case studies; * demonstrate how theoretical concepts can be applied in the workplace by undertaking an appropriate industry placement in tourism; * demonstrate skills in quantitative and qualitative evaluation, management and marketing in a tourism context; * demonstrate an awareness of the significance of the conservation and sustainable development of environments and assets, the preservation and management of heritage, and the preservation, development and distribution of cultural capital in the management of tourism; * act ethically as professionals within the field of the international tourism industry.
