Ecotourism

EcotourismThe Ecotourism Department represents a vibrant and relatively new area of study for Bolivia, as people recognize the uniqueness and diversity of their culture, language, and natural wonders.

Students participate in and develop unique projects that teach local people about the positive impact that international visitors can have on the local economy.

The Department prepares graduates for work in state or local government, national parks, travel agencies, international organizations, as well as work as small business owners. Graduates possess the skills necessary for promoting sustainable tourism, Bolivia’s natural wonders, and generating income for small communities.
