  • Course description
    The Community Recreation program focusses on the various dynamics of leisure services provision within diverse and changing communities. This program encompasses issues related to management, community development, and the needs of constituents across a variety of sectors.

    The Outdoor Recreation program focusses on leadership in the natural environment. This program provides students with the skills, knowledge and dispositions necessary to serve as wilderness trip leaders, to facilitate groups in outdoor recreation settings, to work in a variety of outdoor and experiential education environments, and to serve as agents of social and environmental change in the world. All classroom and field-based activities include lectures, outdoor and experiential activities, and small group work.

    The Inclusive and Therapeutic Recreation program prepares students to work with marginalized individuals (recent immigrants, people who experience poverty, people with disabilities and illnesses, older adults) using leisure to improve functional abilities and quality of life. The program focuses on issues related to building inclusive communities and assisting individuals to use leisure to achieve a healthy lifestyle and prepares students to work in community (Parks and Recreation Departments, Ys) and clinical settings (nursing homes, hospitals, rehabilitation centres). The Department of Recreation and Leisure Studies offers courses that can lead to achieving certification through the National Council for Therapeutic Recreation Certification (NCTRC).
