Overview

The School of Sustainable Development and Tourism is the first school in Mauritius dedicated to fostering education for sustainable development, with a focus on exploring real world solutions to environmental, economic and social challenges. Since its creation in 2008, the school has been a key player at the national level, offering multi-disciplinary courses at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, including doctoral studies. Promoting education to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and meeting the United Nations 2030 agenda have always been fundamental through our various courses in diverse areas of interest; Tourism, Climate Change, Disaster Management, Sustainability, Communication and Public Relation, Applied Social Sciences, Counselling, Occupational Safety and Health and Urban Planning among others. Through these courses, the school also addresses some of the most critical challenges of our time.
 
The School has two main departments; Department of Tourism, Leisure and Services (DTLS) and the Department of Environment, Science and Social Sustainability (DESSS). Lectures are serviced by both full time and part time lecturers. Through our student centred approach, our faculty staff cover the headline issues which our society and environment are facing today. Our courses help to promote our students as global citizens and future employees with the desired soft and technical skills. The school has successfully maintained, for the last twelve years, the IOSH-UK accreditation for its programme in Occupational Safety and Health, and
looks ahead with confidence of achieving other international recognition along with our local and international collaborators/partners. Besides our teaching and learning agenda, our research-oriented faculty members have increasingly been securing funded projects to strengthen our research mission. The school promisingly endeavors to continuously enhance
its research publication portfolio through collaborative applied research initiatives.
