The Recreation and Parks Management major prepares students to pursue careers in commercial recreation and special event management, leisure services management, and therapeutic recreation, and prepares students to pursue graduate study at the master's level. The program has been accredited by the NRPA/AALR Council on Accreditation since 1981.

The Hospitality and Tourism Management major prepares students for a variety of management positions in the hotel, restaurant, and travel and tourism fields. Students first complete a set of courses that gives them a broad foundation in all areas of hospitality and tourism management. Students select one of two concentrations: hotel and restaurant management or travel and tourism management. All students complete a business minor.

The Department of Recreation, Tourism, and Hospitality Management is committed to offering an academically challenging program of undergraduate education coupled with a solid foundation of a liberal arts education.
