At Brock, we want you to have the best student experience possible.
To help you make wise academic decisions, our department has an Academic Advisor knowledgeable of your specific program requirements.
You are encouraged to take the time to meet your Advisor and learn how you can be a successful undergraduate student.
Your advisor is a friendly, approachable person who can support you on your student journey in a number of helpful ways.
General program advising includes:
- Program planning
- Course selection
- Change of majors
- Adding minors
- Choosing concentrations within Recreation & Leisure Studies
- Information regarding international exchange agreements and studying abroad
- Provides support and advice about Academic integrity, misconduct, probation, suspension or debarment
Future career and educational planning includes:
- Job searches and career opportunities within the Recreation & Leisure sector
- Consultation regarding pathways to graduate schools and teacher’s colleges
- Queries from prospective college transfer students wishing to apply and study in the Department of Recreation & Leisure Studies
Looking for a useful tool to help you stay organized and meet all of the requirements to graduate from your specific program of study?
A Program Planner will help you keep track of what courses you have already taken, what you still need take and whether you can take that interesting elective you’re curious about?
*It is the responsibility of each student to ensure the courses selected meet their degree requirements.
Please note: not all courses are offered every academic year, so taking the time to plan now, may save you time later!
