Dear List members 

 

Cultural Tourism is one of the most important and rapidly expanding
economic and social phenomena of the contemporary world. To respond to
the professional and intellectual challenges this implies for cultural
practitioners, destination managers, heritage site managers, museum
curators, policy makers, planners and academics, the Centre for Tourism
and Cultural Change at Leeds Metropolitan University has developed an
important, innovative and interdisciplinary Master's qualification in
Cultural Tourism. The new MA course has been developed by the Centre's
staff after consultation with the various organisations which constitute
the cultural tourism sector and will draw upon the longstanding research
experience and international networks of the CTCC. 

 

New MA Cultural Tourism starting this Autumn

 

The aim of this new programme is to allow its participants to take an
informed position in contemporary theoretical debates and applied policy
programmes, focusing on tourism and its relationships with different
concepts and expressions of culture. The course is designed to equip
students with the knowledge, ideas, and awareness of policy contexts at
the local, national and international scale, together with the research
skills and relevant practical applications relating to cultural tourism.


 

"This is a timely moment for a serious Master's degree in Cultural
Tourism, as the forces of xenophobia and cultural exclusion threaten to
drown out the voices of cultural exchange and cosmopolitan educational
experiences. This    programme will produce experts and professionals
who can help to analyze and manage the challenges of tourism in a
globalized world without losing sight of the critical ethical challenges
facing all leisure industries today." 

Arjun Appadurai, John Dewey Professor in the Social Sciences, The New
School, New York

 

Taught by the academic staff of the Centre for Tourism and Cultural
Change, with inputs from our global network of researchers and
professionals, the MA will address the most important themes and issues
surrounding the relationships between tourism and culture including: The
structures and dynamics of international tourism and cultural flows; the
social practices and performances of tourists; international tourism and
cultural heritage policy; the relationships between tourism and concepts
of modernity, globalisation and colonialism; tangible and intangible
heritages and their management; the role of museums and the ways by
which cultures are represented; festivals and cultural events; culture
and regeneration; tourism as a means of intercultural dialogue.

 

Through the 'Researching Cultural Tourism' module, a choice of second
semester options and, the opportunity to work on a 'live' case study
relating to the cultural sector, the course allows students to develop
their own interests and skills. And, by undertaking a dissertation the
MA will equip participants for future leadership roles in the diverse
and dynamic field of cultural tourism and/or develop an opportunity to
undertake a PhD at the Centre for Tourism and Cultural Change. 

 

"The new MA in Cultural Tourism deals with many of UNESCO's current key
priorities. These include the sustainable management of tangible and
intangible heritage and the vital area of inter-cultural dialogue. As a
global organisation, UNESCO recognises the strong links between tourism,
culture and development. Through exploring these relationships on a
world-wide basis, best practice can be developed which benefits both
local communities and tourists. I welcome the establishment of this new
course as a contribution to maximising the opportunities that cultural
tourism can offer." Barbara Woroncow OBE, Deputy Chair, UK National
Commission for UNESCO 

Culture Committee

 

Through the acquisition of knowledge and skills students will be able to
move into a range of career opportunities in the cultural tourism
sector; heritage management, tourism / cultural policy, international
development and research.

 

The CTCC welcomes applicants progressing from undergraduate
qualifications in the social sciences and humanities, as well as from
more applied and inter-disciplinary undergraduate programmes such as
tourism management. The course is also designed to meet the career
development needs of professionals from organisations and government
agencies concerned with the sustainable development of tourism, museums,
heritage sites, and the cultural sectors. 

 

"The Centre for Tourism and Cultural Change at Leeds Metropolitan
University is already a magnet internationally for top-notch graduate
students and scholars interested in the interdisciplinary study of
tourism, both the theoretical issues relevant to it and its application.
I am thus very happy to see that the Centre has developed its MA program
in Cultural Tourism, which in addition to including the Centre's
interdisicplinary theoretical and practical focus, promises the study of
tourism as a cross-cultural and inter-cultural practice with important
implications not just for scholars, but especially for tourism
professionals, who must try to mediate in a sustainable way between
local identities and needs and the expectations of tourists. The new MA
course will further enhance the Centre's excellent reputation world
wide." Professor Shelley Baranowski, Vice President International
Commission for the History of Travel and Tourism, University of Akron,
USA

 

"I fully support this new development. The MA in Cultural Tourism will
be an important opportunity for students to learn more about the complex
relationships between tourism and culture." Ning Wang, Professor of
Sociology, Sun Yat Sen University, Guangzhou, China
