The Tourism Minor is intended to provide a complementary area of study for students who wish to understand the nature, content, and structure of tourism experiences and operations. Whether it is from a personal perspective fostering critical reflection of our own motivations and behaviours, or disciplinary lenses that consider a range of outcomes of tourism activity (e.g., economic, social, environmental), tourism is a context ripe for examination.

The operating sectors of tourism are typically listed as attractions, events, travel trade (e.g., tour operators), accommodation, transportation, adventure recreation, entertainment, food services, and tourism services (e.g., planning).
