Though Uttarakhand is the richest in the cultural heritage, teaching of the ancient Indian Culture and Spiritual tourism, Health tourism, Rural tourism were most neglected in the universities of the state. Looking into this discrepancy our department- the department of Tourism was established. The goals and objectives of the department art to provide the basic background of higher learning and research in the region, highlighting the grandeur, heritage and culture of the area in chronological order and develop the job potential for the region in the area of tourism and culture.

Travel & Tourism is one of the largest foreign exchange earners, providing employment directly & indirectly to millions of people worldwide through many service areas. Some of these service areas are the govt. tourism dept., the immigration and the western services, the travel agencies, the airlines, the tour operators, and the hotels. The career in the travel tourism industry is essentially concerned with providing services for people who are away from home, on business of holiday. It requires assessing the needs of tourists and businessmen and helping them make the best possible travel arrangement from the many travel options available.
