Department of Tourism Studies

The beginning of the Department of Tourism Studies (DTS), Pondicherry University, may be traced back to 1991, when, with the seed financial support from the Ministry of Tourism and Civil Aviation, Government of India, a Centre for Tourism Studies (CTS) was established in as a nodal centre for advanced tourism education and research. The CTS was subsequently elevated to the status of a Department during 2005- 06. The Department is supported by the University Grants Commission's SAP.

The Program is spread across 4 semesters (2 years) within the general Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) in vogue throughout university. The courses offered are of two types: Hard core (compulsory) and soft core (optional).

The mission of the Department of Tourism Studies is to become an agent of change for principled, socially responsible and creative leadership in tourism by providing the highest quality education for present and future business and academic leaders and advance the understanding and practice of tourism management through research and outreach. We strive towards inspiring people and enriching tourism management practice and leadership.
