Tourism, an industry that is growing in the northern and Arctic regions, is affected by globalization and environmental transformation, but also plays a role in changing the North. For example, tourism can be a component of community development, drawing out creative solutions to social, economic and environmental challenges. On the other hand, tourism can bring unwanted and unintended pressures that have negative outcomes for community structures and the environment.
The students attending a joint higher education in tourism will become professionals in their field of study, specialising on northern tourism and various aspects closely related to the sustainable development of the Arctic region.
The graduates will in the future be the consulted experts,
- who steer the development of the Arctic towards a more sustainable direction;
- who hold the contemporary know-how of the present-day challenges facing the economic growth in the North; and
- who thanks to their education have increased employment possibilities in the field of tourism in northern and Arctic context.
- Northern Tourism in Practice
- Sustainable Tourism Development in Northern Environments
- Northern Hosts: Performances and Experiences
- Ethical Epistemologies of Tourism
- Designing Tourism Futures
