Description:In the 21st-century, the world has never been smaller: global markets, travel, and information flows penetrate our daily lives. No matter what field of study you enter into, chances are your 21st-century career will require an appreciation for and knowledge about living in an increasingly globalized world. Are you interested in understanding the human dimensions of travel, including social issues such as immigration, human trafficking and global inequality, more deeply? Or are you interested in studying the global tourism industry, including prospects for ecotourism or social problems such as sex tourism? Then the travel and tourism profile is the profile for you. This profile aims to give students a better understanding of the economic, social and cultural impacts of travel and tourism in a 21st-century, globalized world.

The Travel and Tourism profile prepares students for university studies in transportation, hospitality and tourism, as well as geography, marketing and business (note that Mathematics pre-requisites are necessary for university level business studies).
