Sport and Recreation
Our sport and recreation programs offer a wide range of opportunities to put your learning into practice. Picture yourself developing brain teasers to help older patients maintain nimble minds, interviewing the MVP in the locker room after the big game, or organizing a midnight basketball program for inner-city youth. Ithaca grads do these things and more all the time.
On and off campus, you’ll be working side-by-side with professionals in your field. Many of our numerous athletic teams -- both men’s and women’s -- are perennial contenders at regional and even national levels, so you’ll have plenty of opportunity to hone your broadcast and management chops. And our students regularly intern with major sports teams as well as national and international sports organizations.
Our recreation management program leads to all sorts of exciting careers, like the booming adventure travel industry. We're also proud to be one of only a handful of colleges nationwide to offer a major in therapeutic recreation, preparing you for the national certification exam.
