|Field of Study:||Tourism and Travel Services Marketing Operations
|Description:||Seneca’s Tourism and Travel Diploma program is designed to provide you with an understanding of the skills, knowledge and attitudes required to work in the leisure, cruise and corporate travel sectors. Emphasis is placed on developing and honing your business skills in marketing, professional selling, negotiation, computer reservation, and tourism geography. You will study and work in the Seneca uniform. By living this standard each day, you'll become practiced in formal, occupation–specific presentation, and prepare for the real world. Best of all, as a student of the Travel and Tourism program, you will gain 150 hours of valuable field placement work experience as well as an opportunity to take an optional co–op placement.
During the second semester, you’ll have the opportunity to apply for admission to the co-op option. Co-op provides you with the opportunity to secure a paid work term between semesters three and four. It also allows you to benefit from a combination of classroom learning and real-world experience. Please note that you will have a shared responsibility for securing employment opportunities and must meet co-op entrance requirements in order to be considered (see Student Advisor or Co-op Co-ordinator for details). Co-op tourism related positions may be in travel operations, hotel services, sales, retail, event and trade shows, promotional activities, and exceptional customer service positions, among others.
|Cost per year:*||
All students enrolled in a co-operative education program will be charged an additional, non-refundable, administrative fee. Collection of the fees will commence with the semester in which the first Co-op Professional Practice subject is scheduled, at the rate of $495.00 per work term.
