New Master of Science in International Sustainable Tourism at the University of North Texas

Application Deadline: July 1, 2010

The Master of Science in International Sustainable Tourism is the first joint degree program at UNT. The degree is in partnership with CATIE (Tropical Agricultural Research and Higher Education Center) and will educate graduate students for management and leadership in the international sustainable tourism industry. Students receive one degree with both institutions’ credentials, thus allowing the evaluation of sustainable tourism through each institution’s strengths of scientific, policy, and operational perspectives of hospitality management.

The UNT/CATIE Master of Science in International Sustainable Tourism is the only graduate program of its kind in the United States and Costa Rica. Its unique interdisciplinary perspective allows for the application of sustainable tourism not only in two countries, but around the world, leading to unparalleled career opportunities for graduates. UNT and CATIE are both high-quality research institutions with outstanding teaching facilities, libraries, computer labs, research resources, and student services. Students will participate in class research, case studies, and other investigations throughout the joint graduate degree program. A field work experience with a linked research project and presentation is required for the final capstone course at CATIE; students will gain practical experience in tourist destinations, NGOs, and/or governmental organizations in Costa Rica as part of the joint graduate program.

Apply now for Fall 2010! The deadline is July 1 for international students currently in the US. To submit a prospect sheet, and for all admissions requirements, documents, and deadlines, please visit:
