A degree in Recreation Management provides excellent preparation for a variety of careers within the field as well as excellent leadership and interpersonal skills.  Our core set of courses is designed to help you establish an appreciation and understanding of the value that leisure, recreation, and wellness related services bring to individuals and communities.  Our motto, Engaging People, Creating Communities, is indicative of our department's mission.  Not only do we want to develop students to become active and involved citizens in their communities and in the lives of the people they serve, but we also prepare them to plan and deliver experiences that engage people and build communities.

Students who follow the Adventure Leadership and Outdoor Recreation track may pursue a career as a park ranger, an environmental educator, a conservation specialist, a camp director or an outdoor adventure guide. 

Students who follow the  Cultural Heritage Management track may pursue a career in the areas of museology, environmental education and interpretation, preservation, tourism, community development, and entrepreneurship.
