BSc (Hons) or Diploma in Tourism Marketing
In order to be visible internationally and regionally, tourist destinations in Oman must compete internationally and ensure they meet current and future needs of tourists. This requires more emphasis on customer orientation and sophisticated marketing practices and management. Marketing tourism is different from marketing most other products, as what is being marketed is an experience.
The BSc (Hons) in Tourism Marketing therefore provides an interdisciplinary approach so as to develop professionals for the tourism sector who have a deep understanding of the critical role of marketing in supporting business growth. Graduates of the programme will be able to plan and integrate the marketing of tourism systematically and holistically whether for private or state owned organizations at local, national, regional and international levels in order to meet the needs of identifiable consumer groups. The curriculum integrates the study of tourism, a marketing focus and the development of the individual student.

TEACHING AND LEARNING STRATEGY
A variety of teaching and learning approaches is used in the classroom to create a collaborative environment where students will feel safe to share ideas and their challenges. Teachers will use a scaffolding approach which gradually reduces teacher support in order to encourage independence as the ultimate goal.
Constructive assessment and feedback by the teacher is considered necessary and is an intricate part of the teaching approach to help students reach their full potential. During feedback it is important that teachers acknowledge what students have achieved to maintain high levels of motivation.
