MacEwan's Travel program takes you places. This two-year diploma program is condensed into an accelerated 13-month format so you can fast track your studies to get right to work. In this program you'll study the ins and outs of the travel industry: from sales and tickets to managing suppliers and agents. You'll also receive hands-on experience with the actual computerized reservation systems used by the travel industry.

Get an in-depth look at the world's most important tourist destinations, and learn what motivates travelers to frequent them. Learn how to deal with everything from international border crossings to environmental and social concerns. Develop an understanding of the evolving travel market and the technology used to document and sell North American and international travel.

Month 13 is spent in a practicum placement so you can apply your new skills in a real travel job.

Plus, a newly signed transfer agreement will allow graduates of the Travel program up to 48 credits towards the Bachelor of Tourism Management degree at Thompson Rivers University.

Oh, and did we mention our study tours? All students have the option of completing a study tour to better familiarize them with their careers in travel. Travel study tours have gone to destinations like Europe, the Caribbean, Hawaii and China.
