Planning a Study Abroad Program Based on Culinary Tourism
Hospitality & Tourism Management
College of Community and Public Service
The process of study abroad has become an important component of undergraduate curricula in the United States. Engagement in study abroad programs enables students to gain a global perspective of their intended disciplines including the hospitality industry. This engagement also has the potential to develop cultural awareness and sensitivity among students. The proposed workshop is designed to engage conference participants in the design of a study abroad program for students that is based on culinary tourism, which involves learners with food traditions that are based on local and regional cultures. The desired result is the development of cultural competence among students while they achieve a global perspective on the culinary arts.
