Recreation is about improving people’s quality of life. It is a dynamic and diverse field that spans the public, private, and non-profit sectors. From health wellness to advocacy, recreation professionals provide leadership by creating positive environments for people of all ages to explore their potential, connect to community, increase health and wellness, celebrate cultural traditions, and live meaningful happy lives.
The Recreation Management Program is a degree completion program (third and fourth year of a bachelor's degree) for students who have a recreation diploma or the equivalent, and who are interested in pursuing entry-level and middle management careers in the Recreation Field. The program is flexible and student-focused and combines a solid foundation in management theory and practical knowledge with specialized courses in recreation.
The first two years of this program can be done through the Recreation Leadership Diploma Program.
