Heritage and Tourism at Western

The Heritage and Tourism major in the Bachelor of Social Science introduces contemporary heritage issues and provides an in-depth understanding of tourism as a social phenomenon.

In addition to enabling a critical examination of the relationship between heritage and tourism in a number of settings within Australia and internationally, the major also delivers a strong practical orientation. This allows students to learn beyond the classroom through digitally enhanced field trips and onsite visits, as well as an opportunity to opt into a semester-long placement within the heritage tourism sector.

True Reward focuses on the scores that reflect your strongest skills and lead you to excel at university, rather than your scaled ATAR or results impacted by COVID-19.
