Course Description

Tailored for students with a keen interest in the key emerging areas of environmentally sustainable and culturally responsible tourism, this three-year degree is about connections with place, wilderness and the land.

It contains the core foundational tourism theories and principles and extends and applies this learning to tourism in the natural world. The ecotourism specialisation gives you a thorough knowledge and understanding of some of Australia's most significant natural landscapes along with the skills necessary to design, plan and deliver inspiring and memorable experiences for visitors.

Well-developed interpretation skills are enhanced by experientially-based learning opportunities. You can apply your knowledge and skills with field trips to many of Victoria's most significant nature-based tourism destinations as well as longer study tours to destinations that represent Australia's iconic landscapes, such as Kangaroo Island off the coast of South Australia and Central Australia's desert.
