About this program

Tourism Management

Our Tourism Management degree equips you with up-to-date knowledge on the key tourism theories and will highlight the major trends and developments in the field. It also demonstrates how the underpinning theories can be applied by tourism organisations in real business settings.

You will gain a truly interdisciplinary outlook on tourism as the degree curriculum embeds knowledge from a variety of related subjects, including geography, finance, human resources management, operations management and events management. The degree seeks to actively engage with local stakeholders and some key elements of its curriculum focus on tourism development in the city of Liverpool and the wider region. The curriculum is research-driven and business practice-based; this provides you with up-to-date and first-hand tourism experience which can represent a key advantage in the highly competitive job market.

Tourism Management is highly interactive and your learning will be enhanced with a number of national and international fieldtrips. You are taught by experienced academics who have proven expertise in the subject and have been trained to provide high quality support. Liverpool is an ideal place to study tourism as the city and the wider region host a number of the key tourist attractions in the UK.

A Placement Year option is available for this course. Undertaking a placement year as part of your degree programme offers you the opportunity to gain valuable work experience alongside your studies.
