Our Tourism and Hospitality MSc brings together a rigorous social science approach with the development of skills that are needed by, for example, restaurant entrepreneurs, resort coordinators and hotel managers.

We welcome applications from graduates of any discipline. You will study theoretical approaches through modules such as ‘Critical Tourism Theory and Methods’ and ‘International Tourism and Development’. There is a core module in ‘Hospitality Management Studies’ and an optional module with a focus on work-based learning. You will negotiate the final phase of the course with your tutors to reflect your personal interests and career aspirations.
