Abstract [en]

The sustainable practice of tourism is heavily dependent on its practitioners. Moreover, the education of these practitioners has been an ongoing debate with the sector. The author of this study have chosen to examine how sustainable is the tourism education and how it is been1 structured by analyzing the curriculums of master’s programs in higher educational institution in Swedish universities. The aim is to identify if the programs curriculums are holding the standard for sustainable tourism education. To accomplish this, a literature framework was established which includes transformational education and critical pedagogy. The content analysis method was applied to collect and analyze syllabuses from programs and courses. Results revealed the role of faculties in the pedagogy approach as syllabuses from programs and course in faculties grounded in economics studies had traits that were identified as unsustainable. The analysis also revealed that there were areas in which these syllabuses incorporated EfS principles. Even though the analysis revealed how the content of these syllabuses aligned with the principles of EfS, it also exposes the areas which traditional approaches are still being practiced. This study lays a foundation for future understanding of this area of research.
