The Department of Recreation and Leisure Studies offers a master of science degree in recreation and park administration (RPA), which is designed for individuals employed in or seeking employment in a diverse range of settings.  Students may choose a thesis option (36 s.h.) or special project option (39 s.h.) as part of the degree. Depending upon selected coursework, the master’s in recreation and park administration prepares students for upper level positions in community parks and recreation, recreation resource management, recreational therapy, recreation sports management, commercial recreation, and travel and tourism.  Prior education and experience facilitates timely graduation.  Individuals with undergraduate deficiencies will be required to remove such deficiencies through supplemental course work while enrolled in the graduate program. In addition to the MS degree, students interested in particular treatment modalities for various types of rehabilitation may enroll in (or take courses in) the aquatic therapy or biofeedback certificate programs. Additional information may be found at the links listed below.
