The purpose of the Cruise Experience practicum is to provide students with hands-on exposure to the cruise industry. Students interact with faculty, other students and professionals in the collaboration and sharing of ideas. The course is designed to increase students' understanding and appreciation of the cruise experience, the issues related to delivering recreation services in the cruise industry, principles of tourism, management strategies, and the factors affecting guest services. The course format is one which focuses on problem solving, encourages a high level of interaction among participating students, faculty, industry partners, and gives participants an opportunity to actively engage with customers.
During the embedded travel component, housing will consist of lodging on board of the cruise ship.
The process for enrolling in an embedded course varies according to the instructor and/or department. The program leader has indicated that in order to enroll in the course and travel component, students must submit an application including submission of their unofficial transcripts and a narrative statement about how this course fits their career goals.
