In this specialisation you will learn to understand and interpret advanced theories and practices of leisure and tourism and their influence on the social and physical environment.
Tourism has a major economic, social and environmental impact on places and regions. It is based on the cultural appreciation and value of the cities and landscapes tourists visit. This Master's specialisation allows you to understand the processes involved and how to use them in practice. Since tourism is mainly about experiencing places and events, you will learn to understand where these experiences come from, what effects they have and how they can be influenced.

The Master's is offered in cooperation with Wageningen University. You will follow 4 specialisation courses and 2 elective courses (both in Nijmegen and Wageningen), after which you can specialise further in your Master's thesis.

After graduation, you can be employed in a wide range of jobs, such as city planner, region marketeer, policy maker, cultural planner or consultant. Both in and outside the Netherlands.

The Master's in Cultural Geography and Tourism is a specialisation of the Master's programme in Human Geography.
