Travel Agent Degrees and Programs

Whether searching for heavily discounted destinations or researching luxury accommodations, a travel agent serves as the go-to resource for all travel needs. Despite a surge in online bookings, savvy tourists understand that a tourism manager is essential to a seamless vacation.

Do You Need a Travel Agent Degree?

Although a degree is not necessary for some travel careers, travel agent programs can provide you with the knowledge and skills necessary to fill some of the industry's most sought after positions. Many vocational schools, colleges, and universities offer travel degree programs. You can earn an associate's, bachelors, or even a master's degree. A tourism agent should have knowledge in:
  • Geography
  • Culture and customs
  • Travel regulations
  • Computer and online programs
  • Problem solving
  • Communication skills
  • Foreign languages
In addition, continuing education courses can help you stay informed of new travel trends.

The Future of Travel Management

The median income for travel managers was $30,570 in 2008. Agents are expected to provide their clients with insider information and travel tips not easily found elsewhere. Job prospects for those who specialize in a specific destination or travel niche may find lucrative careers. Travel agent opportunities can be found throughout the country. The number of job openings available for those in the travel industry is expected to remain stable during the decade between 2008 and 2018.
