The Master in Design Innovation for the Tourist Industry program takes a multi-disciplinary education approach to research design and apply it to the field of tourism. During this program students will learn how to implement strategies and activities in the tourism industry based on design and design working methods. 

Along with the University of La Laguna (ULL), the University of Barcelona (UB), the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (ULPGC) and the University of the Basque Country (UPV-EHU) take part in this inter-university master’s degree.

Admission requirements

Admission will be direct for students coming from a bachelor’s degree in design, fine arts and industrial design engineering and product development from the European Area of Higher Education Students from other degree courses, such as architecture, social sciences and economics and the social science and humanities disciplines in general, may gain access once their application has been assessed by an academic committee that will use the student’s academic curriculum to determine which foundation subjects the student must study in the Master in Design. This foundation course will consist of between 15 and 30 credits for the student. In order to avoid overlap with the teaching of the first semester of the master, these foundation credits will be gained in a “foundation year”, in other words, students attaining the foundation credits will require two academic years to complete the master’s degree; a first year to attain between 15 and 30 foundation credits, in the first or second semester depending on the degree subjects assigned to them, and a second year in which students will be taught the contents of the master from scratch For students coming from the former fine arts bachelor’s degree course, access will be direct. In those cases in which students can accredit relevant professional experience in accordance with the contents of the master, the academic committee may exempt them from the foundation year To gain access to the master programme, students will have to accredit a level of B1 in English pursuant to the common frame of reference for languages
