    Course Summary

    Goldsmiths University London offers a unique Tourism and Cultural Policy MA program. It is unusual in that it is intensely interdisciplinary in nature. You’ll explore the way the artistic and cultural sector affects tourism both in the UK and abroad using a wide range of tools and perspectives. The program is delivered by the ICCE (Institute of Creative and Cultural Entrepreneurship), and is taught by experts from the travel and tourism industry, academics in related fields and influential researchers.

    London is a great place to study the interaction of the cultural sector and the travel & tourism industry. You’ll have direct access to the minds behind some of the world’s most successful event-led regeneration projects, including the London Olympics.

    Many of the modules you’ll take will be elective. This lets you tailor the degree to your interests and career goals by including content from any College department, such as Media and Communications or even the Confucius Institute for Dance and Performance.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

You might also do laboratory based work, collaborate with other students in delivering some type of practical project or on a group presentation. You should also expect to spend quite a bit of time in individual, non-directed study.

    Career Possiblities

    Of course, most students take this degree with the intention of working at a high level in the travel or tourism industry, for public, private or not for profit sector development bodies, or for the government entities which regulate these activities on the national or global levels. Others go into PhD or research degree programs. Some take the transferrable skills they’ve learned and move into a completely unrelated field.
