Study Tourism and Event Design and Management in AustraliaGRADUATE CERTIFICATE IN TOURISM
(FESTIVAL & EVENT DESIGN & MANAGEMENT)
The Graduate Certificate in Tourism (Festival and Event Design and Management) provides solid grounding and experience in all aspects of festival and event design and management and is specifically designed for people whose employment requires them to have in-depth involvement and knowledge about managing large events. It is particularly valuable for local councils, schools, churches and businesses which host events to which they invite members of the public.
The Festival and Event Design and Management course has proved very successful and is the only one of its kind to be endorsed by the South Australian Tourism Commission and Events South Australia. A measure of its success is the increasing number of interstate and overseas enquiries the University is receiving about the course.
The 18 unit award is offered on campus through a series of workshops and can be completed within one semester or taken over a longer period of time. It is an articulated program offered by the Tourism Department and taught by Dr. Steve Brown, Head of Tourism, along with a number of experienced industry lecturers who are experts in the area in which they teach.
The program begins with an overview of the whole complexity of festival and event management, continues by delving deeper into the areas of design, marketing and evaluation of events and goes on to deal with legal, environmental and access issues, risk management, production management, event staging and financial management.
