CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – A second information session will be held tonight at 6 p.m. for those interested in UPEI’s new masters in island tourism program.

The new two-year program begins in August and incorporates online learning and work-study with tourism organizations. Students can obtain a graduate degree in the expanding field of tourism, applied specifically to islands.

The second of two information sessions will be held tonight, Thursday, Jan. 25, at 6 p.m. in room 243 of UPEI’s Don and Marion McDougall Hall.
