Community Recreation and Sport Management

The Community Recreation, Sport and Camp Management

The community recreation and sport management (CRSM) concentration is focused on preparing students for programming and managerial positions in a wide variety of recreation related fields including the public and nonprofit sectors such as municipal parks and recreation, state and national agencies, voluntary youth serving agencies, religious-affiliated social agencies, university campus recreation programs and much more. Students will take classes in a wide variety of areas including management, leadership, programming, risk management, facility operations and more. In addition, all students will gain hands-on experience through a 400-hour internship working for an employer in a position tied to community recreation, amateur sport or camp management. Today’s CRSM professionals are a strong component in a national movement to increase the quality of life for all citizens through a wide variety of recreation opportunities.
