Sažetak
This paper aims to demonstrate the similarities and differences between undergraduate tourism curricula in Europe and the Republic of Croatia from an interdisciplinary perspective. Research has revealed similarities relating to the duration, titles and number of courses. The frequencies of occurrence of non-economic subjects in European and Croatian courses are shown to be very similar, although the scope of interdisciplinarity in European courses is much broader, and is reflected in the diversity of subjects and course titles. Of all higher education institutions not belonging to the economic grouping in Croatia, only one offers a single tourism course. The reason for limited interdisciplinarity in Croatian courses lies in the fact that tourism, together with trade, is set within the economic research area, thus discouraging a multidisciplinary approach to researching the tourism phenomenon. The paper puts together a model of an undergraduate tourism program based on interdisciplinarity and multidisciplinarity in Croatia. A scenario for developing interdisciplinarity in tourism curricula is selected, which pursues a holistic approach combined with the general systems theory to ensure a comprehensive and intricate understanding of the tourism phenomenon.
