The MATM is a two-year program and offered in two delivery formats – on-campus or a blended model – the MATM program is your ticket to make a difference in the global tourism industry. Program Description The global tourism industry demands passionate entrepreneurs and leaders with advanced, industry-specific training. The Master of Arts in Tourism Management (MATM) program is designed to help you fulfill that demand by empowering you to lead and adapt to change.

Together with your cohort, you’ll develop individual resiliency and strong collaboration within your learning community. The MATM program is built around three central themes: leadership, sustainable community development, and global understanding of travel and culture. The course content expands upon a conceptual foundation in the social sciences and business. These areas of academia help to enhance your personal development and provide unique insights into tourism, both as an adaptive economic engine and a global social instrument for change. A variety of engaging elective courses and specializations allow you to customize your educational journey and align it with your desired research interest and future career path.

Key Features The Master of Arts in Tourism Management is a 36-credit program that covers a wide array of topics integral to your success in the highest levels of the tourism industry. The program, which combines team-based work and online learning, consists of six required courses, a range of electives courses, field studies, semester abroad opportunities, an optional internship, three optional specializations and three completion options. Field study The MATM on-campus program includes a field study to a world-renowned destination. During this trip, you’ll conduct field research on a topic of your choice while connecting with local agencies and experiencing the destination from a tourist’s perspective. This week-long trip includes both group activities and individual time to explore on your own. The field study is an optional component for our students in the blended MATM delivery.

Internship As part of the MATM program, you’ll have the chance to develop valuable industry connections and experience during an optional 420-hour internship. Your internship is an opportunity to intimately explore a specific career path - either in Canada or abroad.

Learn how our Career Learning and Development office supports Royal Roads students. Specializations The MATM has three specialization options: Social Entrepreneurship, Disaster and Emergency Management or Sustainability. Selected due to areas of high demand in the market, these specializations allow you to personalize your learning experience, customize your program, and gain the knowledge and practical experiences in areas that interest you most. Learn more… Completion options You’ll be able to choose from three different program completion options: course-based, major research project (MRP) or thesis option. Both the major research project and thesis options are recommended if you’re considering pursuing a doctorate in the future. Course-Based: The course-based option includes the six required courses plus five elective courses that you’ll choose depending on your research interests. You’ll complete the program with a capstone course which consolidates your program. Through this completion option, you’ll have the opportunity to customize your learning by focusing on themes within the tourism and hospitality industry and expanding your consulting and entrepreneurial skill sets. Major Research Project (MRP): Following the six required courses, you’ll select three elective courses and complete a major research project. This research project integrates both theory and applied research. You’ll complete your project with guidance from a faculty advisor. An MRP includes 1) a paper 2) a video, spoken presentation, forum, or other approved presentation medium If you’re looking to apply your research learnings in your current workplace or if you’re interested in getting some applied project experience, this path is ideal for you. This completion option gives you an opportunity to deep-dive into a specific topic of interest. Thesis: In addition to the six required courses, you’ll choose two elective courses as well as develop a thesis. The thesis option requires approval from the program head. This approval process is in place to ensure you are committed to finishing the thesis within the duration of your program. You'll complete a comprehensive research paper which includes both primary and secondary research on a particular topic of interest. You’ll work with your faculty advisor to identify your topic, methodology, theoretical framework and appropriate literature. In addition, you’re required to select an academic committee and are expected to defend your thesis at the end of your program. Admission Requirements Standard Admission Four year (or comparable) undergraduate degree, preferably in a related field, from a recognized post-secondary institution, normally with a minimum admissions GPA of ‘B’ (3.00/4.33). At least two years of full-time work experience within the tourism or hospitality industry. Flexible Admission Under flexible admission, the combination of work experience, education, and professional development is assessed. Applicants must show evidence of having sufficient knowledge, skills and abilities to complete a demanding academic course of study at a graduate level and have significant industry related experience. As a general guideline: Applicants with no post-secondary education would normally require a minimum of seven years of progressive work experience, three years of which would be in a leadership role. Applicants who have completed some post-secondary education (but who do not meet our 4-year degree requirement) will be adjudicated on a case-by-case basis with greater emphasis placed on the quality and years of work experience. English Language Proficiency If English is not your primary language, please review our English Language Requirements Additional Recommendation(s) Academic writing skills are required for success in this program and an English composition course focused on academic writing is therefore recommended. The Academic Writing and Critical Thinking course offered through Continuing Studies at Royal Roads University meets this recommendation. Outcomes Graduates of the Master of Arts in Tourism Management program possess a broad range of applied technical, interpersonal, analytical, and advanced communication skills that transfer directly to entrepreneurial and management roles within the tourism industry. The curriculum focuses on developing skills across four broad areas: 1. Knowledge and Critical Thinking You’ll hone your critical thinking skills in applying interdisciplinary research to the study of tourism and hospitality, and you’ll learn to demonstrate integrity when collaborating with a diverse array of industry stakeholders. You’ll also learn how to effectively – and ethically – use research methods, concepts and theories to examine a range of challenges and solutions in the building of successful tourism organizations and destinations. 2. Global Awareness You’ll learn to evaluate the impact of both local and global affairs on tourism organizations and destinations, and you’ll develop innovative strategies for building personal, organizational and community resilience. You’ll leave this program with an acute understanding of the important role of tourism and hospitality professionals as responsible global citizens. 3. Effective Communications You’ll develop an arsenal of highly effective communication tools, including speaking, writing, listening and feedback skills. You’ll learn how to effectively gather and analyze information, and how to compile your research into written materials using the APA reference method. You’ll rely upon these skills in a number of situations you’ll face throughout your career in tourism and hospitality, including negotiation, conflict resolution, change management and networking. 4. Leadership and Collaboration Building on your existing leadership skills, you’ll learn sophisticated techniques to network more effectively, support collaborative decision-making, and foster mutual understanding in order to achieve both individual and team results. On a more personal level, you’ll acquire vital self-assessment and self-awareness skills that will lead to more positive and mutually beneficial relationships with stakeholders from diverse professional and personal backgrounds. Careers The Master of Arts in Tourism Management (MATM) program opens the door to an array of exciting opportunities in the tourism and hospitality sector, both locally and internationally. Graduates of the program hold management and executive-level positions within resorts, destination management organizations, inbound tourism companies, government agencies and more. Because a master’s degree is often required for attaining upper-level positions within the global tourism industry, many of our graduates find that combining their prior tourism industry experience with the academic credentials acquired in the MATM program is the key to unlocking their professional potential. The MATM program will enable you to explore a wide variety of rewarding career paths, including upper-level positions with hotels, resorts or cruise ship operators; professional consulting in the information technology or real estate sectors; leadership positions within destination, recreation or event management organizations; and myriad roles in other sectors such as government, finance, education and more. If you’re a passionate believer that tourism matters – in your community and around the globe – and you’re ready to take your career to the highest possible level, then the MATM program holds the key to unlock your potential.
