The objective is to gain an understanding for the basic phenomena in cultural tourism as well as to recognize the prospects and resources offered by cultural tourism.
An Approach to Cultural tourism introduces the concept of cultural tourism. During the course, tourism students will get an insight into the mindset of arts and culture, while culture management students will familiarize themselves with the tourism industry and its actors. Thus, the tourism ecosystem will be examined from the perspective of cultural tourism.
The e-learning programme is implemented by JAMK, Haaga-Helia, Metropolia and LAB universities of applied sciences, as a co-operation between cultural production and tourism education. Each university of applied sciences produces studies for the common programme, which can be utilized by the participants in the training as agreed.
The cultural tourism programme consists of three five-credit courses, which are available for studying either individually or as a whole. An Approach to Cultural Tourism is the the first, introductory course.
Please, take into account, that the enrollment to the second and third course requires entry level of knowledge previously acquired either from this programme or in another way.
