The curriculum for the Bachelor of Travel and Tourism Management (BTTM) Degree Programme prepared with a broad vision of extending the scope of academic practices in Tourism and Travel by familiarizing the learners with the recent advances in the subject and to make the subject sensitive to address the major issues in travel and tourism field. The designing of modules in each course has been done by this vision and mission. The curriculum ensures adequate significance to topics of contemporary scenarios.

The curriculum also offers one open course in the 5th semester for the students from other programs according to their preference. The curriculum includes a Choice-based Core Course (6thSemester) and the institution can select one among the three Choice-Based Courses.
