Creative

Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be drawn towards the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.

Summary... header image

(Chinese/French/German/Irish/Italian/Spanish) 

Tourism is now the largest industry in the world. This exciting new programme is unique in bringing together the study of both tourism and languages. This four year Honours Degree programme, including a year abroad, offers a high level of linguistic proficiency, cultural awareness and training in business skills for tourism. It will enable graduates of the programme to function in the competitive but rewarding field of international tourism.

Students will receive a dual qualification in languages and tourism. The language modules provide the opportunity to gain professional competence in one or more languages through traditional linguistic studies, contemporary cultural studies and translation studies. Tourism modules introduce students to the business of tourism and explore exciting fields such as Sustainable Tourism and Enterprise Development.

Prospective students should have a keen interest in the culture and heritage of Ireland as well as the countries of their chosen language. The programme is shared equally between the School of Languages and the School of Hospitality Management and Tourism at DIT. This means that graduates will study the language(s) of their choice, and also have a broad level of exposure to the tourism industry. They will benefit from the international reputation of both schools whose experience and knowledge is reflected in the modules which this programme offers.
