Course Description

Introduction The MSc Tourism and Hospitality programme has been designed to facilitate a combination of real-world experience and critical reflection through work placements, fieldwork and classroom-based activities. The programme applies a social scientific approach to both tourism and hospitality studies through a focus on the contexts of globalisation, commercialisation and consumption. A particular strength of the programme is the consideration of the linkages between the travel, tourism and hospitality industries in relation to organisation and management, as well as in providing satisfactory experiences to consumers. Career Opportunities Past students from our tourism programmes have gone on to a range of management careers including in attractions, museums and destination marketing. You may also choose to set up a tourist or hospitality business or go on to research and lecturing. Facilities Our London Campus (http://www.sunderland.ac.uk/londoncampus/) is situated in the heart of Canary Wharf, London’s vibrant business district. Students are provided with state-of-the-art facilities which have benefited from a £4million investment, including a modern and practical library, IT facilities such as WiFi and a large computer suite, a relaxing students’ lounge and a Live Campus online learning portal. Cutting edge technology, expert support and a career-focused approach provide the ideal environment for you to launch your business career.
