Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) Starts Courses in Hotel, Hospitality, Heritage and Tourism

Jamia Millia Islamia starts courses in hotel, hospitality, heritage and tourism

New Delhi: Jamia Millia Islamia has set up its newest department, the Department of Tourism, Hotel, Hospitality and Heritage Studies. In addition to the existing Diploma and Certificate in Tourism & Travel Management (being offered under the Department of History), the new Department of Tourism will introduce seven new courses.

The new courses to be taught at the department are:

Bachelor in Hotel, Hospitality, Heritage and Tourism Studies
Master in Hotel, Hospitality, Heritage and Tourism Studies
Diploma in Cargo Management
Diploma in Hotel, Motel & Resort Studies
Diploma Course for Guides & Escorts
M. Phil in Tourism, Hospitality & Heritage Studies
Ph D in Tourism, Hospitality & Heritage Studies

These courses are expected to begin in the academic year 2009-2010. The new Department of Tourism will be Jamia’s 39th department. It shall be a part of the Faculty of Humanities & Languages and shall be located in the old premises of the Zakir Hussain Library.

“The Tourism Ministry has granted Rs 2 crore for establishing the Department; the amount will be released over a period of two years. Of the grant, Rs 50 lakh shall be for making improvements, alterations and modifications in the existing building and Rs 1.5 crore shall be set aside for equipment, books, furniture, fixtures, etc.,” says a communication from the university.

Jamia Millia offers lessons in tourism

For those who want to cash in on the booming tourism industry, here’s something to watch out for. A new department at Jamia Millia Islamia — an 89-year-old central university in the Capital — will offer seven new courses, including graduate and post-graduate courses in hospitality and tourism with focus on heritage.

“While most courses on tourism are about logistics and numbers, our course will focus on heritage, which is a different approach to this kind of training,” said Rakshanda Jalil, director, media and culture.
Admission to the seven new courses is expected to begin this year. Teaching will initially start with guest faculty.

The new department takes the total count of departments at Jamia to 39. “The tourism ministry has given us a grant of Rs 2 crore for setting up the department, which will function from the Zakir Husain library,” added Jalil. “The ministry will also extend help to train students.”

Of Rs 2 crore, Rs 50 lakh will be spent on rennovating the existing building. Rs 1.5 crore has been set aside for equipment, books, furniture and fixtures.
The university is yet to decide on the number of seats for each course, the actual strength of faculty and the exact date for kickstarting admissions.

“The student pursuing a course offered by this department will have an edge over others as he or she will also know the history and culture of the places studied,” said Jalil.

“The academic orientation of the courses will also give a student the opportunity to go into teaching.”
