Tourism is an excellent lens through which we can engage and critically understand ourselves and society at large. Tourism education and research at SDU strives to transform the university into an engaged, collaborative institution where academics and students pursue an unrelenting examination of knowledge, and its uses.
We have reclaimed the aims and freedom of the university as a centre for a higher order knowledge development, and for collaboration with, and for society. We do this through research-based education, education-based research, and a number of collaborative engagements. We aim to charter new territory in international academe, as well as in multi-level collaboration based on interdisciplinary research with a strong foundation in the Humanities.
