Academic and Professional Objectives

The Master's degree in Environmental and Tourism Economics offers the possibility of gaining extensive knowledge of economic aspects of tourism and its socio-environmental impact. This is an innovative approach in the international field of postgraduate education in economics and tourism, and it fills a significant gap in the study of tourism as an economic activity.

So, the masters’ main aim is to study in more depth the sub-disciplines of environmental and tourism economics, placing special emphasis on the interrelations between them, and opting for quality and rigour in the development of content. Furthermore there is the opportunity to work in an international context, inherent in tourist activity, which is shown both by the approaches covered in subjects and the overall composition of teachers and students. Subjects are mostly taught in English.

The aim, then, is to train professionals in the areas of consulting, planning and management of public bodies, public-private partnerships, international organisations, corporations, teaching and learning, and research.

Orientation

The degree is both academic and research-oriented.

General skills acquired upon successful completion of the degree, students will be able to:

  • Speak in public using information and communication technologies.
