Graduates of the program will leave with well-developed field skills, a solid background in management and the kind of real-world experience that makes them attractive to employers.

In our region - and throughout the nation - adventure tourism is growing. As people spend more of their free time experiencing the natural world, adventure recreation managers will play an increasingly important role in creating experiences that are safe, responsible and unforgettable.

Examples of career opportunities include county or city adventure programmer, challenge course manager, scouting council program manager, therapeutic program director, rafting river manager, ski school director, climbing guide service manager and non-profit recreation program director. Our graduates will also be prepared for careers in recreation planning with the National Park Service, Forest Service, U.S Army Corps of Engineers and other branches of the military service.
