Adventure & Eco Tourism

Advance Certificate

Sacred Heart Junior College’s program in Eco-Tourism Development is unique in the region, and among few such programs in the world. Designed to provide students with a background in natural resource management and tourism, this degree program also combines entrepreneurial theory and practice critical to developing and expanding Belize’s economy. Students take courses from four different areas of study incorporating a range of skills applicable to the development of the Eco-tourism industry. At the same time, students take a 4 semester seminar course which guides them through the process of conceptualizing and establishing their own business in Eco-tourism, with the aim of providing self-employment and community development during the course of their studies, and thereafter. Students are provided with the necessary training to grow their business sustainably into the future, and to participate in developing Belize’s unique natural and cultural resources. This program admits students on a competitive basis and enrollment is limited.
