|Tourism has become the largest industry and employer in the world. One of the most important and fastest growing sectors in tourism is nature-based tourism, which comprises attractions, activities and experiences involving interaction with natural and cultural resources (e.g., ecotourism, adventure tourism, indigenous tourism). This degree examines the various components of the nature-based tourism system, giving emphasis to the entrepreneurial perspectives and sustainability issues in the industry. Students also choose to specialize in other content areas and disciplines closely related to nature-based tourism, such as tourism marketing, indigenous tourism, geography, international studies, environmental planning, political science, and natural resource management.
