Interdisciplinary higher education in tourism: The case of SQU, Oman

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

1 Citation (Scopus)

Abstract

One of the most distinctive features of tourism is its extensive relationships with other areas, where tourism rooted interactions with economic, cultural, social, environmental, political, and religious aspects are all well documented. It is, therefore, logic to assume that such nested relationships have a reflection on tourism education. In this regard, this research aims to analyse the academic plan of the Tourism Department at Sultan Qaboos University (SQU) to recognize the interaction between tourism and other educational disciplines. As an accredited programme, practices of the Tourism Department at SQU could be seen as a good model for other regional departments which aim to ensure adopting an interdisciplinary approach in tourism education.
