As a Recreation & Tourism Management major in college, you will learn the very real business behind "Leisure" or "Recreation". In the United States alone, there are literally thousands of Local, State, National and "Theme" parks and venues. All must be well maintained, made profitable, and accessible to all. Kayaking, Whitewater Rafting, Mountain Biking, Zip Lining, Flag Football, Softball, Tennis and even Disc Golf are all done in organised settings.
Why is this Important?
- Professional Associations are where the industry of the major gather together
- Many have student chapters you can join while in college
- Many offer internships, scholarships, and opportunities in the major
