M.A.- Heritage Tourism

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The programme encompasses a stimulating and comprehensive view of the heritage tourism industry from local, national and international perspectives and employs a broad range of educational techniques to enhance the learning experience. An extensive fieldwork schedule is an integral part of the program. Destinations are closely related to relevant modules and provide tangible examples to support theoretical work. Trinity’s location within a popular tourist area means that students have a rich resource base from which to draw and have contact with a diverse range of organisations involved in the tourism industry, eg, National Museums & Galleries and The National Trust sites. Students may also get the opportunity to take part in residential study visits to other European countries. A six-week work placement within a relevant heritage tourism organisation provides invaluable industry experience and an excellent opportunity to establish contacts within the industry.
