The subject introduces basic concepts, theories and provides practical experience to help students gain a deeper understanding of the tourism and hospitality industry. It enables students to explore and understand the relationship between individuals and society through the study of local and international tourism and hospitality trends and issues, and their social, economic and environmental impact.
