Bachelor of Science HES-SO (BSc) in Tourism


Study programme

The Bachelor's degree programme in Tourism is a three-year full-time programme over six semesters. The focus of the curriculum is on multidisciplinary learning and the interaction between the 13 skills to acquire.

In the first year, students acquire basic knowledge, which is then deepened in integration modules. They also have the opportunity to participate in commissioned work and research projects in cooperation with the Institute of Tourism.

The strongly practice oriented degree programme cooperates closely with the tourism industry. The last two semesters allow for a more individualised design of the curriculum by choosing semester or annual options such as event management, entrepreneurship/business creation or package tours. In parallel, students can specialise in tourism and/or develop soft skills such as leadership.
