The Department of Recreation and Leisure Studies provides students with multiple opportunities for experiential learning. Students complete a semester-long programming fieldwork as well as an administrative fieldwork. Other courses provide opportunities for students to interview practitioners in the field and work firsthand with people in the community. Additionally, students complete a 12-week internship before entering the profession.
By the time students complete their studies, they have a clear idea of what they would be doing professionally once they graduate -- and they have several field placements to include on their resumes.
