Program description

Study International Leisure & Tourism Studies at NHL Stenden

The Masters in International Leisure and Tourism Studies takes a holistic, interdisciplinary approach towards integrating tourism and leisure. NHL Stenden University offers students the opportunity to study a single degree or a dual degree. The dual degree allows students to obtain a Dutch Master of Arts (MA) and British Master of Science (MSc).

Tourism is greatly affected by internationalisation and globalisation, which stimulates cross-cultural interaction between people from all over the world. Therefore, this concept is explored in great detail throughout the course. Furthermore, the programme emphasises the sustainable development of leisure and tourism and is approached from an economic service management perspective. Throughout the programme, students will also learn how to use scenario planning.

Tourism has become the most important sector of leisure and is therefore in need of professionals who are able to mediate between the micro-level of local communities, the meso-level of regions, and the macro-level of nations. The Master degree in International Leisure and Tourism Studies prepares students to do just that.

Upon competition of the Master programme graduates have a number of professions open to them such as consultancy, research and management and coordination.
