BA (Hons) in History Heritage and Cultural Tourism
The BA History, Heritage and Cultural Tourism course is a three-year full time undergraduate programme focused on teaching of skills and inculcating experience required for the management of heritage and the capacity and knowledge building in the cultural tourism sector in the Republic of Mauritius and the South West Indian Ocean. Without a good knowledge of history, which underpins all Heritage work in Mauritius, many problems can arise. As the same time, heritage has become a tourism economic resource value as well as a marker of identity, nationhood, and a means to social cohesion (intrinsic value). Heritage and Cultural Tourism therefore, need to be carefully managed to ensure social cohesion as well as providing sustainable means of living for communities. To be able to harness the full potential of heritage, there is need for capacity building at all levels and particularly at graduate and post graduate level.
The course is designed to provide knowledge and competence in the field of History, Heritage and Cultural Tourism. It equips students with the skills required for a number of history and heritagerelated professions in the tourism sector as well as in teaching, research, archive, journalism, heritage research and management and museum work. The degree will also provide a firm background for postgraduate training in the Cultural Heritage and Tourism industry and will allow students to apply knowledge and skills acquired to a practical workplace experience.
