Master of Science (Tourism Planning)


Jointly conducted by the Department of Urban and Regional Planning and the Faculty of Management and Human Resource Development, the programme adopts a flexible teaching approach to suit the needs of both fresh graduates as well as practitioners in producing skilled and highly trained tourism planners. The teaching approach has evolved from its urban planning tradition since the inception of the course in 1998 to a multi-disciplinary and collaborative approach based on the principles of sustainability. A distinct feature of the course is ‘hands on’ learning through ‘live’ projects. The programme also covers the whole spectrum of tourism planning such as ecotourism, urban tourism, rural tourism, heritage tourism, island tourism, and sustainable tourism.
