TR1100 - Tourism & the Arts

This course introduces the concept of Cultural Tourism and its connection to the Arts in Newfoundland and Labrador. Students will learn the principles of the contemporary tourism industry while focusing on the effect that it has on art and vice versa. A major aspect of this course is an understanding of the cultural geography of the province with a specific focus on the heritage of each region and the ways in which art is both representative of, and responsive to, that heritage. The goal is to create a thorough understanding of these elements and to encourage students to pursue employment in the tourism industry.
