1 Study Center in Dublin, Ireland Course name: Sustainable Tourism in Ireland: An Analysis of Responsible Tourism in Ireland Course number: BUSI 3001 IRSU Programs offering course: Irish Studies; Business and Tourism Language of instruction: English U.S. Semester Credits: 3 Contact Hours: 45 Term: Summer 2017 Course Description Using a variety of learning including seminars, sites visits, field trips and industry presentations, these courses examine the success and innovative nature of Irish tourism since its inception. Tourism is one of the most effective ways of redistributing wealth, by moving money into local economies from other parts of the country and overseas. Ecotourism in particular can place a greater focus on the conservation of natural resources through the recognition of their importance to visitor experiences and their economic value to the local community. Tourism development encourages a positive sense of community and national identity and can reinforce distinctive traditions and customs that come under threat from the globalization of culture. Recognizing the economic and socio-cultural benefits of tourism, and being equally aware of the negative impacts of mass tourism, Ireland has embraced and developed tourism products that are clean and green and developed an international reputation in the development of heritage, rural, cultural and ecological tourism. Learning Objectives Utilize a range of disciplinary approaches (historical, political, sociological and economic) in helping to understand economic division and conflict within Europe; Examine how contemporary political communities use the past to construct traditions, ideologies, and identities; Understand the socio-cultural and economic impact of tourism on rural communities; Develop a broad understanding of the history and politics of the European Union project; Critically analyse contemporary issues in European tourism. Course Prerequisites There are no prerequisites for this class. Methods of Instruction The course will be taught through a variety of methods including: (Guest) Lectures PowerPoint presentations Seminars Sites visits and walking tours related to course content In-class and independent multimedia screening including films, documentaries and contemporary media sources 1
