As one of the world’s largest industries, tourism relies on the very best research to drive positive growth.

Experts with a thorough understanding of tourism in its wider social, cultural, economic and political contexts are invaluable to the industry.

Southern Cross University’s PhD in Tourism allows participants to explore new research in areas such as gambling and gaming, nature-based tourism and leisure, cultural tourism, sustainability and policy, and management and governance.

Participants are expected to produce an original piece of research that will contribute to our understanding of the tourism industry at a local, state, national or international level.

Academic staff in the Faculty of Business, Laws and Arts can provide supervision for various discipline areas. Please search for a supervisor on our Find a Supervisor page.
