Tourism Higher Education in Armenia - Is there a need to internationalize the tourism higher education of Armenia? Documentary research
Armenia is an historical country rich in cultural heritage. However, due to historical events, the tourism and education systems have faced various challenges, and the question of preserving and developing tourism has become primary. Accordingly, rapid changes in higher education and tourism have resulted in an overview of the concept of internationalization of tourism education in Armenia. The tourism industry plays a significant role in the development of Armenia’s economy and society. Generally, there is a broader discussion of Armenian diaspora in the frame of tourism, but there is little attention on tourism education, particularly internationalization. Accordingly, this thesis focuses on the internationalization of tourism education in Armenia by conducting documentary and archival research. The thesis aims to review the current state of tourism education by underling its gaps and barriers in the development of international tourism. Notably, the thesis highlights appropriate efforts and strategies for the internationalization of tourism education.
