BA/BS in Exercise Science & Outdoor Recreation
The new Exercise Science and Outdoor Recreation bachelor's degree is Outdoor Recreation Management. Students completing this degree are qualified to become park interpreters, resort recreation directors, corporate recreation managers, or community recreation directors. Supported by a strong background in recreation theory, with courses like Outdoor Leadership and Recreation Risk Management, students also choose from a variety of land and water-based skills courses, including avalanche awareness, off-road cycling, scuba diving and whitewater kayaking. More than a career, a major in Outdoor Recreation Management teaches leadership for life, because graduates exit the program with enhanced personal responsibility and confident ability to overcome barriers.
