TOURISM, TERRITORY AND LOCAL DEVELOPMENT
This Master’s Degree (Level of qualification: 2nd cycle / 7 EQF level) offers a set of interdisciplinary, polyvalent skills and knowledge to give students the planning and decision-making abilities to face complex situations like the relationship between tourism and local development.
The specific educational goals of this degree course are:

This interdisciplinary approach, including Geography, Sociology, Economics and Communications Science, confers the ability to analyse a geographical area and identify its strengths and weaknesses in terms of tourism;
- teaching up-to-date, polyvalent, practical skills through an active methodology, exercises useful in the working world, and lab work under the aid of representatives from the professional world;
- sensitizing students to problems emerging from the relationship between place and culture, in order to know how to use local specificity in tourism in a non-intrusive way that brings development for the local community and landscape.
