Welcome to the Department of Ecotourism, Recreation and Hospitality

The Department of Ecotourism, Recreation and Hospitality is among the four Departments of the School of Natural Resources. The Department seeks to produce graduates capable of working either as employees or as entrepreneurs in the tourism sector that has over the last two decades moved from the sidelines to the centre stage of Ghana‟s economic policy.

Graduates from the Department are equipped with strong and vibrant leadership skills to manage ecotourism prospects of the country and manage the hospitality sector of the tourism industry to meet the increasing demand for recreation, tourism, biodiversity conservation and green species. The Department offers and prepares students for a four-year degree, leading to the award of BSc. Natural Resource Management (Ecotourism option and Wildlife and Range Management option) and BSc.
