Marshalls’ Hospitality and Tourism programmes provide a broad-based, multidisciplinary, practical and active curriculum with the view to developing critical and analytical minds of students, unleashing their creative potentials and equipping them with relevant managerial and leadership skills. This will help in Marshalls’ quest to produce graduates who will be poised to confront the challenges of their time and beyond, whilst serving as positive influence in their society. It will also contribute to meeting the human resource needs of Ghana’s tourism and hospitality industry for the realization of an internationally competitive and sustainable tourism industry.

Due to the multifaceted and multidisciplinary nature of the Hospitality and Tourism industry, the curriculum is designed to include the broad range of courses in the humanities including; Economics, Management, Geography, French, Philosophy and Sociology as well as the depth of courses in Tourism and Hospitality management. This will ensure that students become well rounded rather than limited to the area of tourism and Hospitality management.

The Marshalls University Hospitality and Tourism programmes are practical-oriented. Though students are introduced to theories and concepts relevant to every course, to facilitate their understanding of issues, the focus is on development of practical and problem-solving skills. Students acquire practical skills through demonstrations, role plays, practical projects, case studies, interactions with practitioners or guest lecturers and more importantly, through the Management Internship Programmes  (MIPs) undertaken during the vacation period, at the end of the second semester of Levels 200 and 300.

The active curriculum of the Hospitality and Tourism programmes ensures that students learn to be producers and creators of knowledge, rather than passive consumers of information. Students are given the opportunity to engage in substantial independent research and creative work through assignments, group projects and project work. The learning process is thus discussion-rich, project-driven and writing-intensive.

BACHELOR OF ARTS (B.A) DEGREE IN ENGLISH LANGUAGE PROGRAMME

Rationale

In recent years, stakeholders have had cause to complain about the low level of proficiency of Ghanaian students and graduates in English, which is the official language of the country. Although all schools and universities teach English as one of the core subjects, the problem of low proficiency still persists. There have also been complaints about the appropriate language use in relation to politeness and decorum. There is therefore the need for all institutions to train graduates who will be able to use the English language effectively, not only for gaining employment but also for effective communication. This programme provides students with the opportunity to learn the English language, to learn about the language, and also to study many other ways of the use of English to meet their linguistic needs.

The programme will also respond to the expectations of the nation by producing knowledgeable, employable graduates who are well versed in using the English language to communicate at the national and international job marketplace.

Although language and literature will constitute the bulk of the programme, the prospective graduates will be required to pursue it not to the exclusion of studying other things worth knowing. In fact, the programme provides them with the opportunity to acquire at least the rudiments of other areas of knowledge such as Philosophy of Science, Introduction To Logic, Basic Mathematics, Statistics, French, etc, which eventually enable them to build up a useful wider knowledge base.

Thus graduates holding a B.A degree in English from this University College can apply at their places of work, where necessary, not only their specialist knowledge in English language and literature, but also their wider knowledge base to solve divers problems. From this will emerge more adaptable and resourceful graduate English specialists than those who, though equally competent as specialists in the same discipline, may not have even a smattering of other areas of knowledge.

The programme will address the deplorable falling standard in English and ensure that Marshalls graduates in English, particularly those who will opt to teach the subject, become not only conscious of this deficiency, but also commit themselves to remedy it by insisting in their teaching on the constant use of proper forms of standard English.
