Tourism Geography and Planning

Tourism as a socio-cultural and spatial phenomenon has become a major constituent of flows of people at different geographical scales.

Tourism geography and planning explores the interactions amongst tourists, visitors, and inhabitants in and with places.

What effects does tourism have on places visited and on the inhabitants of those places? How are tourism destinations socio-culturally and spatially constructed? How do tourists influence and experience spaces, places and cultures? How can regional identities be used in tourism planning, and which role(s) can tourism play in regional development?

These questions will be critically explored in the Masters Track Tourism Geography & Planning. This Track is part of the Masters Programme Cultural Geography which focuses on how place attachment, local qualities and regional identities influence spatial behavior and perceived quality of life of people and places. The courses are taught in Leeuwarden at RUG/Campus Fryslân In this Track, the Faculty of Spatial Sciences collaborates with the  School of Tourism Management  at Stenden University of Applied Sciences.

Tourism Geography & Planning offers international, place-based, critical and research-oriented perspectives. It will equip graduates with socio-cultural, spatial and planning theories, up-to-date research methods, and relevant practices about tourism and places.
