Ecological, Sustainable, and Ethical Tourism
Ecological tourism is a growing arm of the tourism industry that makes use of low-impact and sustainable approaches to create business opportunities and drive economic growth in natural areas. This course introduces students to the fundamentals of tourism and differentiates between mass tourism and alternative forms of tourism development, including eco-tourism, sustainable tourism, and ethical tourism. Students will assess the economic, social and environmental costs and benefits associated with development of ecological tourism businesses. This course culminates in the development of an Environmental Market Analysis and Strategic Management Plan that, when implemented, will both lessen a tourism business’ footprint and build competitive advantage.
