Recreation Management at Ithaca College
Recreation is an important social, cultural, and economic force that influences well-being and life satisfaction. Recreation managers help improve quality of life by providing meaningful leisure opportunities, thus enhancing intellectual, social, physical, spiritual, and psychological well-being. Recreation management is grounded in administrative, leadership, and management theory, and taught experientially. Students are encouraged to combine this program with a minor—for example, in business, coaching, health, marketing, nutrition, psychology, sport studies, or sociology.
