Master Leisure, Tourism and Environment

Increasing numbers of people around the world are spending a growing proportion of their leisure time and money on tourism related activities. The economic and social impact of tourism services on the environment has grown dramatically in recent years, and this is expected to continue.
What motivates tourists to visit remote destinations? How does this travel affect local cultures and economies? And how do issues on sustainability, authenticity, identity and commercialisation fit into the picture? During the two-year MSc programme Leisure, Tourism and Environment at Wageningen University & Research you study the reasoning behind the transformation of certain locations into tourism environments. This scientific programme pays special attention to concepts such as landscape, space, place, locality, authenticity and sustainability.
