Heritage is one of the most important sources of international tourism, and heritage tourism remains one of the strongest growing sectors. If you think about your own travels and holiday, there is a good chance that you visit or experience (cultural) heritage. But making heritage accessible to the general public whilst preserving heritage for future generations is a challenge and requires careful and sustainable management. Do you want to learn how heritage can be managed, preserved and made accessible for tourists, local community and governments that 'own' heritage? Then the Heritage Experience Management minor is exactly what you are looking for!
This minor is offered by Tourism Management.
