You can gain an understanding of the current trends and theories behind successful sustainable tourism practices and identify ways in which tourism can contribute to sustainable development. Students from disciplines such as sustainability and business will find this program beneficial.
As sustainability expands in popularity as a discipline, students are looking to find ways to better understand how they can apply the principles of sustainability to specific areas of interest. A minor in sustainable tourism allows students from any major to learn the basic concepts and theories of tourism development and management. This program helps students identify ways in which tourism can contribute to sustainable development, locally and globally.
The minor allows students enrolled in other undergraduate programs at ASU to broaden their educational experiences. Students from such various disciplines as sustainability, business and many others find this program a beneficial supplement to their existing program. Students may also choose to complete a study abroad program.

Students interested in pursuing a minor should consult their academic advisor to declare the minor and to ensure that an appropriate set of courses is taken. Minor requirements appear on the degree audit once the minor is added. Certain major and minor combinations may be deemed inappropriate by the college or department of either the major program or the minor. Courses taken for the minor may not count toward both the major and the minor.
