PRTM Certificate & Minor Programs

The Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism Management in cooperation with the College of Behavioral, Social and Health Sciences and the College of Education provide a host of certificates and minors to enhance your PRTM degree from Clemson University.

Nonprofit Leadership Minor/Certificate (online)

The nonprofit leadership minor and certificate prepares and trains Clemson students for leadership positions in the expanding nonprofit sector through an 18-credit online program. The minor and certificate are designed for Clemson students to achieve core nonprofit competencies that will enhance their career opportunities in a variety of nonprofit fields.

The faculty who teach in the NPL program are currently professionals working in the public and private sectors who bring a depth of experience and expertise to the online virtual classroom. Students will benefit from the real-life examples and  practical scenarios that faculty draw upon to illustrate concepts and principles in the non-profit world. The online courses provide flexibility to students who need an alternative to traditional in-class schedules. The preceptor course adds an additional element of hands-on experiential learning in which a student interns with a local nonprofit organization, applying theory to praxis and gaining valuable on-the-job experience.
