I'm not sure what you mean by level 3 but, there is a whole scholarship related to tourism.
I study the sociology of tourism. Sociology is a rather broad discipline which touches on economics, psychology, philosophy, and other social sciences. I am particularly interested in the Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC). I am interested in how events like EDC generate jobs and revenue for the economy. A previous study on sports stadiums and sports teams revealed that no sports team or stadium has ever had a long term positive impact on the area.
So what do I hope to do when done. I am going to be a university professor. I am getting my PhD. Some things you could do is/are: work for the convention and travelers authority, work for the city planners office, work for the office of the mayor, work for a travel group, work for a research firm.. the lists are endless. Unfortunately given the sad state of affairs in our economy those jobs will require being in the right place at the right time.
