This course introduces students to marine tourism’s current issues and concepts. Students visit several regional marine tourism sites and hear from industry practitioners, aiding them in forming a deeper understanding of local to global connections. Using case studies, research, and readings, they consider responsible stewardship regarding marine resources within the context of tourism development. The course will be divided into three main topic areas: 1. Marine ecology identification and interpretation; 2. Business best practices in marine tourism; and 3. Stewardship and sustainability issues associated with marine tourism.
