Whether you are just beginning your post-secondary studies or have already completed a credential and want to enhance your resumé, our tourism programs can help you meet your educational and professional goals. Get started in tourism management, hospitality administration and outdoor recreation. Leverage your existing tourism Industry experience.
Choose from many OL and TRU courses to fulfill your program requirements. You can also take post-secondary courses elsewhere and transfer them to your OL program. See BC Council on Admissions & Transfer (BCCAT) to explore your options.
Plan ahead and make the most of your Tourism credential. Our Program Advisors help you choose courses that can later be applied toward another program, either at OL or elsewhere.
