  • Objectives
    The course aims to meet the professional development needs of graduates with an interest in tourism. It draws on both theoretical and practical material and provides the opportunity for students to apply both the principles and the practical aspects of the course in a number of specialisations in tourism. The course aims to: * provide students with a broad understanding of the role of their specialised field in tourism, both in Australia and worldwide; * introduce the concepts in their specialised tourism field and examine how they reflect the arts, culture and/or heritage of a place; * produce graduates who will act ethically as professionals within their specialised field of the tourism industry; * provide opportunities to apply both theoretical and practical knowledge and skills to specific case studies both on and offshore; * instil management and marketing skills necessary for professional endorsement within the industry. Learning outcomes The course is professionally oriented and is intended for people currently employed in the tourism or hospitality area, those who would like to be so employed and those who have an interest in developing knowledge and skills in one of the areas of specialisation. Upon graduating, students will: * be equipped with the appropriate knowledge, understanding, skills and attitudes for successful careers in tourism management; * have developed effective oral, written and interpersonal communication skills for a variety of disciplines and collaborative situations; * have developed evaluation skills to enable graduates to measure visitor satisfaction.
