Program Description:
This travel course to Central and Southern Europe introduces students to international tourism and its interaction with passenger transportation. The course begins in Munich, Germany, where we will meet tourism industry experts and make day excursions to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Dachau and King Ludwig’s famous castle Neuschwanstein. Next, we will cross the Alps to the Croatian capital, where University of Zagreb tourism faculty will provide lectures for our group. Finally, we will visit the Adriatic coast and explore the medieval city of Dubrovnik, the setting for the series Game of Thrones. In learning about tourism, which is the world's largest industry, we will make deliberate use of every mode of transportation (plane, train, boat, coach, tram, city bus, taxi, and foot), and embrace each opportunity to gather insights and perspectives from local residents and fellow international travelers alike. The course content focuses upon the factors that affect tourism flows, including the Schengen agreement, the Euro, security risks, and economic recession. We also consider the positive and negative economic, social, and environmental impacts tourism has upon destinations. Working with the professor and local coordinator, students will assist as “trail boss for one day”, and participate in a group research project that can involve interaction with hosts and other travelers.
