General Information Go to top of document
Administrative Co-ordinator Virginia Wagg 905-688-5550, extension 3484 Mackenzie Chown C322 brocku.ca/geotour Brock University is an ideal location in which to engage in tourism studies. The University is uniquely positioned on the Niagara Escarpment (a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve) and is minutes away from Niagara Falls, one of the world’s premier international tourism destinations. The Niagara Region is also home to more than 100 wineries and a wide variety of rural and sports tourism operations, golf courses, gaming facilities, hiking and bicycle infrastructure, and cultural and heritage attractions. The Department of Geography and Tourism Studies offers a four-year Tourism and Environment program leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree (Honours and BA with Major) and a three-year BA Pass degree program. All Students in the program can pursue a Stream in Tourism Management. These degrees allow students to integrate sustainability (environmental, social, economic and political) and tourism management into their programs of study. Allied with the Goodman School of Business, the Tourism Management stream offers a range of business-related courses. Students will develop transferable skills in many important areas, including research skills, communication skills, critical thinking, problem-solving abilities, and the ability to work collaboratively with others. Students will also learn to incorporate innovative, creative and responsible opinions and perspectives into their future endeavours. The field course TOUR 3P57 is held in October in the week following Thanksgiving Day, with seminars/labs during term. This course is mandatory for students entering year 3; prospective students must register with the Department by April of the preceding academic year. TOUR 4F99 is a required internship course in year 4, enabling students to obtain valuable work experience while still at the University. Prospective students must register with the Department by April of the preceding academic year. 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. 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 Geography and Tourism Studies. 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 Manual (brocku.ca/co-op/current-students/co-op-student manuals) 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 and Environment Co-op program designation will be awarded to those students who have successfully completed a minimum of twelve months of Co-op work experience.
