Adventure, Sports and Sustainable Tourism - MINOR

Effective Fall 2020, Johnson & Wales University will complete its transition from a term calendar to a semester calendar. Starting with the 2020–21 catalog, all programs will represent course requirements in semester credit hours rather than quarter credit hours. Students who started on terms and will finish their degree requirements on semesters should consult with their assigned academic counselor in Student Academic Services or faculty advisor on semester transition academic planning.

The Adventure, Sports and Sustainable Tourism minor provides students with a solid foundation and professionally focused experience in the areas of adventure, sports and sustainable tourism. Focus is on all aspects of operations, program development, implementation and evaluation of success in the niche of tourism planning.

Completion of the Adventure, Sports and Sustainable Tourism minor helps students develop a critical awareness of the ways tourism can enhance the welfare of people while protecting and interacting with the natural environment. Students are prepared to communicate professionally with suppliers, distributors, industry partners and guests.

This minor is open to all students except Tourism & Hospitality Management majors.
