As summer is coming to an end, it is also a good time to think about upgrading your career in the field of recreation. Below are 10 reasons why you should consider our programs:

  1. Langara College is the only institution which offers community-focus recreation programs in B.C and holds a strong reputation of graduating recreation professionals for the past 30+ years!

  2. The Recreation Leadership Diploma Program ladders to the Bachelor of Recreation Management Degree Program (total 4 years) and both can be completed here at Langara College.

  3. The Recreation Leadership Diploma Program can also be transferred to other institutions specializing in various aspects of recreation. See our transferability page for more details.

  4. Both programs provide hands-on experience through internship and/or Co-op opportunities, so students are well-prepared and connected to the field upon graduation.

  5. The Bachelor of Management Degree Program is fully online. Students can complete the program without stepping a foot into a classroom; this is especially feasible for those who are already working in the field.

  6. Both programs can be completed on a part-time basis. Regardless of your background, we have many grad who can share their learning experiences. 

  7. Both the diploma and degree programs are well-recognized and prepare students to work in the recreation field of B.C (i.e. municipal, private, non-profit, or commercial sector).

  8. All instructors are passionate, suportive, well-connected, and knowledgeable in the field.

  9. The Recreation Leadership Diploma Program is a cohort-model which allows students work together throughout their study until graduation. This also provides opportunities to network, build up relationship, and share in the same passion.

  10. Yes, we still have spots available in both programs for Fall 2017!
