Department tourism degrees

  1. 1. The Department of Tourism is a unit of the School of Geography, History, Art History and Tourism of Lyon 2 University, which is itself a part of the University of Lyon higher-education system. Its permanent teaching staff includes two full professors (in geography and tourism studies), four associate professors (in geography and tourism studies, marketing, history and art history, and English for specific purposes), two adjunct professors (in tourism studies) and one full-time senior instructor (in tourism studies), and it is supplemented by teaching staff from other university schools (three associate professors from the law school and one associate professor from the business school) and a large number of professionals working in the field of tourism at large who bring their expertise to students through seminars, case studies and study trips. The Department of Tourism currently runs three highly popular vocationally-oriented programs in the field of tourism: a one-year degree in multilingual heritage and cultural tourist guiding (Bachelor level), a one-year degree in rural food and drink tourism (Bachelor level), a two-year Master's degree in tourism, leisure and heritage studies which comprises two subprograms, one which deals more specifically with cultural heritage tourism issues, and another which focuses on tourist destination development and marketing. http://ghhat.univ-lyon2.fr/spip.php?rubrique6 The Department of Tourism recruits about 150 students every year after a very competitive application process (the rejection rate is about 75 percent) and welcomes exchange students from partner universities in Europe, Africa and the Americas. The admissions committees aim to have cosmopolitan groups of students — in addition to French students from all over the country, recent graduates include international students from Albania, Armenia, Benin, Brazil, Bulgaria, China, Croatia, Cyprus, Germany, Greece, Iran, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Montenegro, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Spain, Taiwan, Thailand, Ukraine and Uzbekistan. The Department of Tourism also has a one-year Master's research degree joint program with three other universities from southeastern France (Grenoble, Clermont-Ferrand and Avignon) and a doctoral program in tourism studies which attracts students from France and abroad (recent graduates include international students from Kenya, Lebanon, Poland and Vietnam).
