  GEOGRAPHY OF TOURISM

Competencies and objectives

 

Course context for academic year 2019-20

La Geografía del Turismo es, como su nombre indica, una asignatura generalista que pretende aproximar al alumnado al medio geográfico como condicionante básico de la actividad turística y de ocio. Es el territorio y todos los complejos factores que lo integran quienes potencian o reducen las posibilidades o el desarrollo turístico en una sociedad concreta. En esta materia se analizan conceptos y fuentes para la comprensión y el análisis del turismo, se analizan las interrelaciones entre la actividad turística y los diferentes medios geográficos, se valora todo tipo de impactos territoriales que el turismo genera, se diferencian las distintas modalidades del turismo en relación con los territorios en que se desarrollan y se trata de concienciar sobre la necesaria sostenibilidad que debe acompañar al desempeño de estas actividades y a la planificación territorial que implica. La función introductoria y generalista de la asignatura implica también una iniciación básica a cuestiones como la utilización de tecnologías de la información, el manejo de las fuentes y el trabajo en equipo.
