The Parks, Recreation and Tourism major integrates the study of environmentally based tourism and hands-on management of outdoor recreation resources. Students may major in Public Outdoor Recreation or Private Outdoor Recreation and Tourism. Public recreation resources include parks, forests, wilderness areas, and other outdoor recreation environments at the local, regional, state, and federal government levels. Private resources include ski areas, campgrounds, resorts, and other natural resource-based recreation facilities. The program permits specialization in several types of private recreation fields, including ski resort management, entrepreneurship, and ecotourism.
