Program Overview

The Tourism and Travel Management program allows you to choose which aspect of the tourism and events management industry you would enjoy most. Spend your first year studying introductory courses to tourism, hospitality, and events coordination, and in your second year, choose between two areas of specialization, Tourism and Travel Coordinator or Events Coordinator.

Choose from:

Tourism and Travel Coordinator

You will learn about travel agency operations and earn your tour guide certification by creating and conducting island-wide tours with your classmates. You will learn about world cultures, and you will acquire advertising layout and design skills.

Events Coordinator

Learn how to plan, organize, promote, and evaluate events such as festivals, conventions, and trade shows. You will have the opportunity to participate in events and to plan and execute an event of your own.

Both specializations include 250 hours of internship between May and October.
