Södertörns högskola övergår till distansundervisning - ingen undervisning i högskolans lokaler från och med onsdag 18 mars.

Regeringen rekommenderade den 18 mars att alla högskolor och universitet går över till distansundervisning. Södertörns högskola har följt rekommendationen och ingen undervisning sker i högskolans lokaler tillsvidare, med största sannolikhet gäller detta hela vårterminen. Alla salsskrivningar ersätts med alternativ examinationsform under hela vårterminen. Studenter ombeds att ta del av information från respektive kurs eller program via Studiewebben. Medarbetare och studenter kommer in i högskolans lokaler med passerkort och både Infocenter och Biblioteket är öppna. Om du befinner dig i högskolans lokaler, tänk på att hålla avstånd till andra. För att minska smittspridningen har vi valt att stänga alla grupprum i biblioteket.

Why this subject?

Growing industry and labour market

People are travelling more, the number of destinations is increasing and the tourism industry is expanding. Tourism Studies will give you skills that are in demand on a growing labour market. You will gain insight into the role of tourism and travel for the individual, but also for society and societal development.

Tourism Studies covers players in the travel industry as well as travellers. You will learn how businesses and organisations in the tourism industry are run through hospitality management, what the visitor industry is like and what funding may be available from the public sector. You will also learn about how visitors, tourists and business travellers experience, work and receive services when they travel.

Visitors and tourism have economic, cultural and societal impacts, as well as an obvious environmental impact. The subject links to issues around sustainable societal development, because the visitor and tourism industries can contribute to the development of a better society. This could be done through the creation of attractive conditions in urban and rural areas, a sustainability perspective on tourism’s impact on the climate, or companies working responsibly for individuals and society.

At Södertörn University, Tourism Studies focuses on urban tourism, with particular emphasis on areas such as hospitality management, experiential tourism and sustainable destinations. It has close links to the industry through job fairs, placements and guest lectures.
