About

Tourism is one of the largest industries in the world. Our Tourism and Environment program at Brock University explores the following questions: How can we be profitable in tourism in a sustainable and responsible manner?

Overview

Our Tourism and Environment program offered by Brock University is designed to meet the needs of a rapidly evolving industry, incorporating principles of sustainability (economic, environmental, social and political) in tourism management and planning. Within the Department of Geography and Tourism Studies, our program examines such questions as: Can we balance the economic benefits of tourism with the negative consequences of pollution, loss of biodiversity, economic inequality and unsuitable cultural change?

Our location in Niagara is spectacular – one of the world's premier travel destinations. The Brock campus is located in a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve on the Niagara Escarpment.

Allied with the Goodman School of Business, the Tourism Management stream offers a range of business related courses. In the Co-op program you'll gain valuable work experience.

You may take advantage of our international field courses, exchange programs, term abroad experiences, or dedicated work-study opportunities with industry leaders like the Disney corporation to explore tourism issues in diverse destinations worldwide.
