Why study Master of Tourism?

The Master of Tourism at Monash is Australia's leading, longest-running and most innovative industry-focused postgraduate tourism program, designed to prepare students for careers in the tourism, or in government agencies concerned with sustainability, planning and the environment. It recognises that the current era of rapid global change is increasing the demand for highly skilled professionals in international tourism and related industries.

Students are taught by expert academics including Dr Jeff Jarvis and Dr Vicki Peel, who are innovative researchers and established industry professionals.

In keeping with the course's strong focus on emerging economies, students have the opportunity to attend an international field school in an emerging economy such as Fiji or Vietnam, where they can gain a deeper understanding of the challenges facing the development of the industry, and how tourism can be harnessed to maximise the benefits for developing nations. Further opportunities exist for students to participate in study tours throughout Australia.

The course provides students with the opportunity to enhance their knowledge and skills in key academic fields including marketing, environmental studies, information technology, cultural heritage and development, planning, natural resource management and sustainability.

Students from emerging economies may be able to apply for fully funded scholarships from AusAID including return airfares under the 'Australia Awards' scheme. We have had a number of AusAID alumni from countries such as Bhutan, Botswana, Indonesia, Maldives, Mongolia, Tahiti, Tanzania, Tonga and Vietnam, who are now working in tourism and development. Please contact AusAID or the Australian Embassy in your home country for further information.
