The accessibility and utilization of both the city and county recreation departments are a huge asset for the Recreation program. They include parks and centers with a wide range of facilities. A significant working relationship exists whereby city and county recreation staff often serve as adjuncts on our teaching staff.
Students majoring in Recreation have the flexibility to double major in a related field if they so desire. They have a wide range of off campus programs and organizations in which to complete practica and internships, including the city and county recreation departments, three local YMCAs, Kids Sports and summer camps. Students also have the flexibility of completing their internship requirement at a facility in their hometown during the summer break.
