I am happy with this hands-on approach, because not only it allows us to gain valuable practical experience in addition to academic knowledge and skills, it also helps to get an idea of the type of job you could get after graduating.

Programme
Tourism and Culture

Angela van Paasen is studying Tourism and Culture at the Radboud University. 

At the moment that I’m writing this we have just started the second semester of the Master’s programme. So far I really enjoy the programme and it matches my expectations. Honestly I did not think I would find a Master’s that would fit my interests so well that I’d like every aspect of it, but so far this is the case with Tourism and Culture. We first immersed ourselves in the field of tourism by discussing its history, relevant theories, current trends and challenges, and now we get to connect theory with practice by doing field work. I am happy with this hands-on approach, because not only it allows us to gain valuable practical experience in addition to academic knowledge and skills, it also helps to get an idea of the type of job you could get after graduating. Personally I find this a real added value compared with other programmes and I believe it makes this Master’s quite unique.
