Abstract
The trends and promising outlook of the global tour and travel (T&T) industry over the next decade offer opportunities for tourism and hospitality (T&H) educators to react and prepare a knowledgeable, highly-skilled workforce. As such, T&H educational setting done by curriculum should distinguish a specific requirement for the principles, practices, and programs that differ from general education. However, the T&H domain of study is still growing and developing. Thus, literature examining curriculum issues or the pressures and changes affecting this important education sector remain relatively limited, particularly in the dynamic global changes of higher education (HE) policy. This article focuses on a T&H curriculum model approach in order to have a comprehensive understanding of the current context to study T&H knowledge creation and research development. It benefitted from a secondary data collection that covered a long-time span, events, and setting. The results and discussion offered the fact that the modernist approach dominates the curriculum model while at the same time produces a condition of instability for the future T&H HE agenda.
