UPEI is establishing a new online course-based Master’s in Island Tourism starting in August.
Students will be able to obtain a graduate degree in the field of tourism, applied specifically to islands.
Jim Randall, coordinator of the Master of Arts in Island Studies at UPEI, says Island tourism is one of the fastest growing global sectors.
The two-year program uses online courses primarily, and includes two work-study courses that bring students together with tourism organizations.
Two information sessions on the program are planned for Thursday, January 25th at 3:00 and 6:00 pm at UPEI’s Don and Marion McDougall Hall.
