Master’s in Tourism and Hospitality Management (RD)

General

Program Description

The purpose of the Master’s of Tourism and Hospitality Management is to develop the ability of the student to question, analyse and interpret tourism and hospitality management issues within a global context with a focus on industry-specific sectors. This purpose is achieved through the delivery of a research-based dissertation at the Master’s Level where the student will show evidence of scientific research and the ability to reflect in the context of tourism and hospitality management.

The programme, therefore, assists in the continuing professional development of managers and leaders in tourism and hospitality management.

Admission requirements

The minimum admission requirement is a BTech (Tourism Management) or a BTech (Hospitality Management) or an equivalent qualification at the same level in the field of tourism and hospitality. The selection of Master’s students will be done in accordance with rules and regulations of the Higher Degrees Committee of the University of Johannesburg as stipulated for inter-disciplinary programs. The STH Research Committee may prescribe a module or modules, at NQF Level 8 or 9 as a supportive measure to successfully complete the qualification. This applies when the STH Research Committee concludes that the student’s knowledge of research needs to be updated or when the research topic extends to issues insufficiently covered at the graduate level.

The basic guideline is that students must have obtained the BTech (Tourism Management) or BTech (Hospitality Management) or an equivalent qualification in tourism and hospitality management. In addition, the student must be able to develop a research proposal for the intended research project. The selection and allocation of postgraduate students depend on the availability of supervisors.
