Tourism, an industry that is growing in the northern and Arctic regions, is affected by globalization and environmental transformation, but also plays a role in changing the North. For example, tourism can be a component of community development, drawing out creative solutions to social, economic and environmental challenges. On the other hand, tourism can bring unwanted and unintended pressures that have negative outcomes for community structures and the environment.
The Master’s Degree Programme in Northern Tourism – based on a joint 30 credits component organised by the University of the Arctic (UArctic) Thematic Network on Northern Tourism – offers a comprehensive and international approach to tourism and reflects on the growing global influence and relevance of change in the north. It brings together researchers and students from the northern universities, with an interest to develop responsible tourism futures. The joint component is organised by Cape Breton University, UiT – the Arctic University of Norway, Umeå University, University of Iceland, University of Lapland, University of Oulu and Vancouver Island University and it is hosted by UArctic Thematic Network on Northern Tourism.
The students attending a joint higher education in tourism will become professionals in their field of study, specialising on northern tourism and various aspects closely related to the sustainable development of the Arctic region.
The graduates will in the future be the consulted experts,
- who steer the development of the Arctic towards a more sustainable direction;
- who hold the contemporary know-how of the present-day challenges facing the economic growth in the North; and
- who thanks to their education have increased employment possibilities in the field of tourism in northern and Arctic context.
