Seneca College – Centre
for Tourism and Leisure Studies – Markham, Ontario, Canada
The Tourism and Travel diploma program provides a broad introduction to the industry. The two-year curriculum is designed to encourage students to develop the skills, knowledge and behaviours required to work in any segment of the tourism industry. After first semester, students choose to specialize in either retail travel, tour operations, meetings and incentives or hospitality. The program offers students a large degree of flexibility in selecting courses from a range of specialist electives. As such, students can create their own cluster of related skills. Thus, the program prepares students for employment in a variety of sectors and for many positions, such as special event coordinator, travel counsellor, tour operator reservations agent, hotel and resort front desk clerk, and restaurant service. Flight Services graduates are often employed by airlines as flight attendants, passenger agent and reservations agent. Travel/study opportunities are offered as part of the program. These range from local day trips to extended international travel.
All students work in an industry placement during their fourth semester. Students usually work two days per week in industry during the semester. Alternatively, students can choose to complete their work placement at an international location.
Graduates of our programs have a number of further training opportunities. Transfer agreements have been made with several university programs in Canada and internationally.
Seneca College has offered a joint Flight Services program in cooperation with Guanzhou Civil Aviation College (GCAC) in China, Daewon University College (DUC) South Korea and the American College of Higher Education in Sri Lanka.
The Hotel and Restaurant Management diploma program provides a comprehensive background in the hospitality industry. The curriculum is designed to encourage students to develop the skills, knowledge and behaviours required to work in any hotel or restaurant environment. After two semesters, students complete a six-month, fulltime paid industry externship. Students also can choose to complete their work placement at an international location. They then return to college for the final semester and a half, thus completing their diploma program in two years. The program provides students with practical hands-on training in a range of hotel and restaurant operations. Travel/study opportunities are offered as part of the program. These range from local day trips to extended international travel.
