Ecotourism

Lasell’s Ecotourism course introduces students to the history, concepts, principles, marketing, planning and management of ecotourism activities and tourism development concepts which promote cultural and environmental awareness as well as local environmental and economic benefits. Global, sustainable, ecotourism development is discussed at length with a look at the larger picture of tourism development including approaches to delivering low impact development. 

The Ecotourism course culminates in an educational trip to a country in the throes of tourism development. Past trips have gone to the Amazon rainforest in Brazil and Belize. These trips provide Hospitality and Event Management students the opportunity to view, research, and contribute to a newly developing ecotourism system.
