Study programme

The 3-year Academic Bachelor's Programme 

The Bachelor of Science Tourism is a three-year joint degree programme delivered by staff from both NHTV Breda and Wageningen University. Year 1 and 2 take place in Breda. In the first year you explorethe complex and multifaceted tourism phenomenon from different angles. In the second year you deepen your knowledge of sustainable tourism development. This year includes an international field project in Southeast Asia. The third year takes place in Wageningen and consists of a minor of your own choice and your bachelor's thesis.

During your studies you will move towards increased (educational) independence. This means educational guidance is at its height during the first year and gradually decreases over the next two years.

The Academy for Tourism also offers an English-taught professional bachelor's programme, International Tourism Management, and two Dutch-taught programmes, one of which leads to an Associate Degree. In addition, the Academy for Tourism offers a master's programme in the field of tourism.
