Administrative Assistant Barb Alexander 905-688-5550, extension 3292 Mackenzie Chown C418 brocku.ca/tren The Department of Tourism and Environment offers a four-year program leading to a Bachelor of Arts in Tourism and Environment (Honours BA and BA with Major) and a three year BA Pass degree program. All Students in Tourism and Environment can pursue a Stream in Tourism Management. The requirement for graduation with a BA (Honours) is a minimum 70 percent major average and a minimum 60 percent non-major average. The requirement for graduation with a BA with Major and a BA Pass is a minimum 60 percent major average and a minimum 60 percent overall average. Brock University is uniquely positioned on the Niagara Escarpment (a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve) and minutes away from Niagara Falls, one of the premier international tourism destinations in the world. The Department of Tourism and Environment strives to foster knowledge of sustainability (environmental, social, economic and political) in tourism and management. Students will be prepared for tourism management career opportunities in a variety of tourism and hospitality businesses, public, commercial and non-profit organizations. Students will develop transferrable skills in many areas of their future lives. They learn the fundamental and more advanced research skills, as well as skills in oral and written expression. They expand their critical thinking, problem-solving abilities, and abilities to work collaboratively with others. They will also learn to incorporate innovative, creative and responsible opinions and perspectives into their future endeavours. Co-op Program The Tourism Management stream Co-op program combines academic and work terms over a four year period. Students spend the first two years in an academic setting where their exposure to courses in the area of Tourism Management provides the necessary background for the first work placement. In addition to the current fees for courses in academic study terms, Tourism Management stream Co-op students are assessed an annual administration fee (see the Schedule of Fees). Eligibility to continue in the Co-op program is based on the student’s major average and non-major average. A student with a minimum 70 percent major average and a minimum 60 percent non-major average will be permitted to continue. A student with a major average lower than 70 percent will not be permitted to continue in the Tourism Management stream Co-op program, but may continue in the BA Tourism Management stream non-Co-op program. For further information, see the Co-op programs section of the Calendar and contact the Department of Tourism and Environment. All students in the Co-operative Education program are required to read, sign and adhere to the terms of the Student Regulations Waiver and Co-op Student Handbook (brocku.ca/co-op/current-students/co-op-student-handbooks) as articulated by the Co-op Programs Office. In addition, eligibility to continue in the Co-op option is based on the student’s major average and non-major average, and the ability to demonstrate the motivation and potential to pursue a professional career. Each four-month co-operative education work term must be registered. Once students are registered in a Co-op work term, they are expected to fulfill their commitment. If the placement accepted is for more than one four-month work term, students are committed to complete all terms. Students may not withdraw from or terminate a work term without permission from the Director, Co-op Program Office. The Tourism Management stream Co-op program designation will be awarded to those students who have successfully completed a minimum of twelve months of Co-op work experience. It is the responsibility of Tourism and Environment students to adhere to Brock University's Code of Student Conduct.
