Master of Science Leisure and Tourism Studies at Breda University of Applied Sciences

The boundaries between leisure sectors such as culture, media, events, sports and tourism are disappearing to an increasing extent. That is why this academic master’s programme takes an integral approach to leisure, deriving knowledge from disciplines such as sociology, psychology, economics, management, and marketing. The programme lasts one year and comprises two phases. The first phase is centred around the current three main research programmes in Leisure: Storytelling, Imagineering and Place-making. In the second phase you will work on a graduation project. This government-funded master’s programme is offered in cooperation with Tilburg University. BUAS is the first university of applied sciences in the Netherlands to offer an academic master’s programme.

The statutory tuition fee for students from the EEA is only €2060.
