Bachelor of Tourism Management Degree

The BTM is a four year degree that provides a solid foundation for the management of tourism businesses. Students have a choice of many specialty concentrations. These are described in more detail under Majors and Concentrations.

NOTE: The concentration streams have different lower and upper level requirements. State your concentration as soon as possible to ensure that you are taking the lower level courses that best prepare you for your specialty studies.

All our courses provide a blend of theory and practice. Assignments introduce students to current management issues with local, regional, national and international tourism businesses and organizations. These assignments are designed to give students the skill and confidence to develop their own tourism businesses and fill the growing need for managers in the tourism industry.

There are increasing numbers of international students in the program, and a growing number of international opportunities for meeting degree requirements. The program works closely with the TRU Study Abroad office and is actively engaged in developing partnerships with universities worldwide.

The program caters to students entering first year and to students transferring from other programs across Canada. It is common for students to enter the BTM in year three after completing a two year tourism or business-related diploma.
