Advancement to Master's Program


It is preferred that applicants hold a tourism or tourism-related baccalaureate degree. The curriculum for the programs assumes a prerequisite knowledge base in the areas of Principles of Tourism (Tourism 110) and Tourism Management (Tourism 122).

Persons who are admitted whose prior training does not include adequate coverage of these areas will be required to pursue the above undergraduate courses. Such pre-requisite courses do not count towards the credit requirements of the diploma program.

Upon successful completion of these pre-requisite courses, students will be allowed to begin the Diploma program. Students are required to pass the coursework and exam components to pass the courses. In addition, other prerequisites may be required upon evaluation of the Graduate Program Committee.


In order to advance to the Master's Program, students of GDipTDM must maintain a 1.75 GWA to advance to MSTDM. Graduates from the diploma program will be given three (3) years to be able to credit his/her units for continuation towards obtaining the Master's degree. Beyond this period, the Graduate Program Committee will recommend additional course(s) depending on the changes made to the original courses taken by the student.

Within their first semester of enrollment in the Master's Program, students must choose between MSTDM Plan A (thesis track) and Plan B (non-thesis track). Transfer from Plan A to B or B to A will be allowed depending on evaluation of students‘ performance and the recommendation of Graduate Program Committee.
