Live Your Passion

A degree in parks, recreation and tourism management (PRTM) helps you turn what you are most passionate about into a career.

Our undergraduate degree program is focused on four learning tracks – community recreation and sport management, park and conservation area management, recreational therapy and tourism and event management – that allow you to focus your learning on your specific interests. We also offer graduate programs in these areas, as well as in youth development leadership. 

No matter which focus you choose, you will graduate knowing how to manage people and places, take an active role in the environment, apply scientific studies to everyday work and the effects of PRTM on local, regional and national economies.

Our graduates work in a variety of different careers across the private, public and non-profit sectors, from municipalities, visitor and convention bureaus, state and national parks, and veterans hospitals to event planning companies, youth serving organizations, and other private firms. PRTM cultivates entrepreneurs and those seeking to make a difference in their community.
