Jonathan M. Tisch Center of Hospitality
Field Study in Travel and Tourism
In this course, students will explore travel and tourism topics and current issues through a global lens, by participating in a field study experience. The focus of the course will be closely aligned with the chosen site location, and will reflect current or future travel trends and/or key challenges for the tourism sector. Through a combination of onsite experiences and independent study post-trip, students will be able to explore their own specific interests within the proposed theme of the course. The course will consist of a minimum of two pre-departure preparation sessions, followed by a field experience of approximately 5 days, at one of NYU¿s global sites or another destination. On location, students will participate in lectures, guest speaker visits and site visits. Part of the coursework for this course will be completed after the end of the field experience.
