A major in Tourism Management at the University of Newcastle prepares students for an exciting career in the fast growing global tourism industry. This major examines the complexity of contemporary tourism in Australia and internationally, and emphasises the importance of sustainable tourism development for long-term economic, environmental, and sociocultural viability.

Teaching and learning in our tourism courses is research-informed and industry-relevant, providing you with the knowledge and skills required of a tourism graduate in a rapidly changing and evolving industry. Tourism staff in the Newcastle Business School are internationally recognised in their fields of research, and are actively engaged in the local and regional tourism industry. Throughout the tourism management major, your learning is enhanced through this engagement with case studies of tourism business and destinations, industry guest lectures and field trips, and workplace relevant learning and assessment activities.

In the first year of your tourism management major you will study leisure behaviour and organisation, along with core business courses, including management, marketing, economics and accounting. In your second year, you will learn about global tourism, tourism sustainability, cultural heritage tourism and visitor management. In your third year, you will study tourism marketing and specialised sectors of the tourism industry. You will also select course combinations that most suit your career interests, including tourism and environmental management, destination development, and events management. To build your practical workplace experience through work integrated learning, the tourism management major provides you with the opportunity to study project in business, or engage in an international work placement or international study experience.
