Description

 

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:

  • teaching students to evaluate the interdisciplinary approach to analysing social and landscape phenomena. 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.

Duration of course: 2 years (120 ECTS).
