Study Program Website

      The Doctoral Program of Tourism at Udayana University was incorporated in August 16, 2010 by the Decree of Minister of National Education Number: 126/ D/ O/ 2010. The program was designed to yield qualified graduates in the field of tourism. The program was developed within the long term, thus it would form the main stream or doctrine of tourism science, as a science mono-disciplinary. The program is the only tourism study program in Indonesia, having parallel study programs, i.e. from undergraduate, graduate to doctoral degrees. Currently, the tourism science is still a multidisciplinary in nature, based on other relevant sciences, such as Social Science, Cultural Science, Economics Science, Environmental Science, Psychology, Planning Technique. In the next ten years, in the framework of tourism as science mono-disciplinary, cultural tourism will be developed by upholding the color and the excellence of local culture; a culture-based tourism development. This approach is expected to be able to address issues of tourism development nowadays that may seem less in favor of the local communities who have cultural uniqueness.

      The establishment of Doctoral Program of Tourism is based on the development tourism science at Udayana University that has never receded. In which in 2001, Udayana University opened Master Program of Tourism Studies by the virtue of Decree of Director General of Higher Education No. 1917/ D/ T/ 2001, dated June 7, 2001. The incorporation of Master's program of Tourism Studies is aimed to yield human resources, having academic abilities and are able to develop tourism science, in accordance with the needs of the community and the development of science, technology and the arts. It also serves as a continuation of graduate Program of Tourism that has been initiated far beforehand.

The Tourism Studies Program eventually turned into a study program of graduate program, by the virtue of Decree of Directorate General of Higher Education No. 2425/ D/ T/ 2008, dated July 29, 2008 and Rector’s Decree of Udayana University, No. 347A/ H14/ HK/ 2008, dated  September 27, 2008, on the incorporation of the Faculty of Tourism, Udayana University.
