Learning outcomes

The module aims to get a first look at the touristic phenomenon, in the wider perspective of destination rather than in the tighter perspective of organization involved in providing specific tourist services.
To this goal, tourism will be at first considered as a whole. Second, nature and “functioning” of destination as global touristic product will be investigated. In the end, issues dealing with tourism quality will be addressed.


The module involves a range of teaching strategies including lectures, case studies and guest lectures. Additional material will be in the form of web-based reading and research, selected texts, journal articles and contemporary magazine and press articles. Independent research and study will be encouraged throughout to complement group work activities.

Assessment methods and criteria

Oral examination to test both basic knowledge and critical analysis skills.
