Course Description

In this capstone course, students complete a community recreation-based project in an organization. Students work closely with assigned instructors who supervise the projects, provide advice, and evaluate students' performance. Through this course, students will link their academic studies to real-world applications. Students create their own research question and partner with a private, public, or not-for-profit recreation organization to explore the question using primary and secondary research. Students develop and demonstrate skills in the area of academics, self-directed learning, project management, communication, social interaction, methods of applied research, ethical decision-making, and professionalism. In this capstone course, students have the opportunity to apply the concepts, skills, and techniques developed in previous coursework.

Students will receive credit for only one of RECR 4300 or 4400.

Registration in this course is restricted to students admitted to the Bachelor of Recreation Management and Diploma in Recreation Leadership.
