Recreation Resource Management

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Students will no longer be accepted into the Recreation Resource Management major after Spring 2013. This major has transitioned to the Park and Protected Area Management specialization within the Forest and Natural Resource Management major. The coursework, career preparation, and emphasis of the Park and Protected Area Management specialization is similar to the old Recreation Resource Management major.


Description of the Recreation Resource Management major (now discontinued):

This major has prepared students to plan and manage natural and non-urban recreational land and water, as well as manage the people and organizations that depend on these important resources. The curriculum emphasizes natural and managed non-urban areas; natural resources-oriented recreation programs in public and private sectors; social science aspects of natural resources use; and skills in communication, planning, and management.
