They will have preferential access to careers in fields of International Tourism, in the private and State sectors as well as in international organisations.

What will I Study?  

Students will receive a dual qualification in languages and tourism. The language modules provide the opportunity to gain professional competence in one or more languages through traditional linguistic studies, contemporary cultural studies and translation studies. Tourism modules introduce students to the business of tourism and explore exciting fields such as Sustainable Tourism and Enterprise Development. 

Prospective students should have a keen interest in the culture and heritage of Ireland as well as the countries of their chosen language.  The programme is shared equally between the School of Languages and the School of Hospitality Management and Tourism at DIT. This means that graduates will study the language(s) of their choice, and also have a broad level of exposure to the tourism industry. They will benefit from the international reputation of both schools whose experience and knowledge is reflected in the modules which this programme offers.
