Contact hours

Each module typically consists of two or three weekly teaching hours over a teaching term of 12 weeks. You will normally study four modules per semester and therefore 8-12 hours per week. Please note irrespective of whether you are a full-time or part-time student your hours of study may vary from term to term and can be spread throughout the week.

Postgraduate level study involves a significant proportion of independent study exploring the material covered in lectures and seminars. As a general guide, for every hour in class students are expected to spend at least four - five hours in independent study. For more detailed information please contact the programme leader.

If you are planning to study the degree on a part time basis, you will be studying two modules per term with 4-6 hours of contact time on a weekly basis.

Arts, Performance and Society (Core)

Arts, Performance and Society (Core)

This module begins with an outline of the relationship between art, performance, audience and state, introducing concurrent versions of the nature, meaning and purpose of art. Special emphasis will be placed on unpacking the apparent cultural divide between high art and popular culture. The study includes an appraisal of the linking of art-forms to specific performance spaces, and an examination of the arts in a range of societal contexts: the arts as instrument; the arts and business; and the arts and religion, and the effect of the societal shift to the ‘post-modern’.

Community Organisation, Sustainability and Development (Option)
Find out more

Community Organisation, Sustainability and Development (Option)

This module aims to introduce students to a range of non-traditional business models and to challenge established expectations and norms about business ethics, motivations, value-systems and practices. The module presents the notion that enterprises can operate due to motives other than profit-maximisation and that Social Purpose Organisations can exist to fulfil social functions using business models to create an alternative basis for sustainability and development. Students are challenged to think critically about these forms of organisation and their impact on societies (positive and negative). Students are also challenged to consider how issues such as performance management can translate into the operations of community enterprises.

Comparative Human Resource Management (Option)
Find out more

Comparative Human Resource Management (Option)

This module is designed to introduce students to the principal issues underlying international and comparative human resource management (IHRM) in a global context. Such issues have risen in prominence due to increasing trade liberalisation, ‘globalisation’, spread of multinational corporations (MNCs), outsourcing to Asia, developmental focus on Africa and economic integration within the European Union.

As firms increasingly internationalise, suitable strategies for managing human resources have become critical to competition between the MNCs. Students can develop an insight into managing human resources in different national contexts and examine those global and national factors that impact approaches taken to international human resource management. More specifically, the module aims to discuss and analyse those factors which result in variations in HRM practices and policies across national business systems.

Digital Marketing (Option)

Digital Marketing (Option)

Find out more

This module examines commonalities of organisational structures that exist within the umbrella term of tourism and events enterprises. The module looks at the legal structure surrounding the enterprise and the accompanying legal constraints. Management theories will be examined together with consideration of management’s involvement with forecasting and planning, control and evaluation of performance.

Students can examine general financial requirements and look into the theories and practicalities of planning and pricing strategies. Financial planning will incorporate short and long term planning and budgeting, in particular cash budgeting.

In this module the emphasis is placed upon identifying the constraints and limitations experienced by these enterprises through an understanding of the practical environment in which they operate. Students can develop an understanding of the general financial requirements of tourism enterprises and the consequent recording and reporting methods that are applied.

Students are expected to produce a Business Plan to incorporate all elements and aspects of the above.

The module aims to support students in developing their strategic thinking skills through a review of diverse theories, models and practical exercises.

Sustainability of Tourism and Events (Core)
Find out more

Sustainability of Tourism and Events (Core)

This module is designed to provide students with the opportunity to develop an explicit understanding and the capability to seek out creative and innovative solutions for the sustainable development of tourism and events. This module takes the view that sustainable tourism or event management needs to be seen as a dynamic process of change, rather than a static goal to be achieved, and therefore must be tackled with ever evolving, flexible strategies. Relevant theories and concepts are linked to practice through case studies or exercises.

The Visitor Experience at Cultural and Heritage Attractions (Option)
Find out more

The Visitor Experience at Cultural and Heritage Attractions (Option)

Cultural and heritage sites, festivals and events are growing in number and popularity. Moreover, the divide between fixed attractions and events is to some extent dissolving. Attractions such as museums and galleries are increasingly attempting to reinvent themselves as spaces of multiple use. This module asks who the visitors are, and what they hope to gain from the experience. It is designed to provide students with an opportunity to develop a critical understanding of the approaches adopted with the intention of enhancing the visitor experience.

† Some courses may offer optional modules. The availability of optional modules may vary from year to year and will be subject to minimum student numbers being achieved. This means that the availability of specific optional modules cannot be guaranteed. Optional module selection may also be affected by staff availability.

We use assessment as a tool to develop intellect, and to simulate the individual, practical and team-working skills required in the workplace. These skills include written and oral presentation, numeracy, and the use of software for presentation and analysis.
