What is an MSc in Sustainable Tourism? An advanced degree in sustainable tourism helps students dissect issues pertaining to ecological responsibility and conservation, as they relate to the tourism industry. Candidates delve into courses on topics such as biodiversity, ecosystem balance, waste management and natural resource management. Students are likely to engage in research projects that allow them to become an integral part of improving conservation practices in tourism.

The critical analysis skills employed in earning this degree make its graduates excellent problem solvers. An increased understanding of the environmental issues inherent in tourist trade and professional contacts made while conducting research prime the program’s candidates for leadership in their community.

Different universities, especially across countries, have different costs. The components of the program can also dictate its price. A master’s degree typically takes two or more years to complete, and the length of time needed to do so can also affect the cost.

Careers in sustainable tourism can range from jobs in planning to positions in public relations. Ecological development specialists and natural resource managers advise new tourism businesses on how to build a tourist spot that has as small a detrimental effect on the environment as possible. If graduates are interested in running their own ecotourism businesses, they can apply to be project managers, nature tourism rangers or park directors. Those who would like to flex their marketing skills might be interested in becoming a communications or marketing manager.

For students who are passionate about preserving our natural resources so that they can be enjoyed for years to come, an MSc in Sustainable Tourism is a great place to start.

After advanced training in data collection and analysis methods, you conduct field research on any one of these topics yourself, learn how to conduct intervention impact assessments, and write your master thesis. -
