Administrative Assistant Sandra Notar 905-688-5550, extension 3259 Academic South 357 https://brocku.ca/recandleisure/ The Department of Recreation and Leisure Studies offers four-year programs of study leading to a Bachelor of Recreation and Leisure Studies Honours and a Bachelor of Recreation and Leisure Studies with a Major. The Department also offers a three-year (Pass) program leading to a Bachelor of Recreation and Leisure Studies. The program is designed to qualify graduates for a wide range of positions in the rapidly expanding field of leisure services. The General Recreation program allows students the flexibility to develop their own program to meet specific needs in the workplace (e.g., management, administration, entrepreneur) or to combine interests rather than focussing on one. Courses can be chosen from the general recreation course base as well as from any of the specialized areas. The Outdoor Recreation program focusses on recreation and the natural environment, encompasses ecotourism, resource management, adventure, parks management, heritage interpretation, outdoor education, leadership and wilderness pursuits. This program prepares students to facilitate outdoor experiences following conservation and preservation ethics. The Inclusive and Therapeutic Recreation program focusses on issues related to building inclusive communities, prepares students to work with marginalized individuals in the community (recent immigrants, people who experience poverty, people with disabilities), therapeutic use of leisure to prevent disabilities and illnesses and improve individuals' functional abilities, and prepares students to work in community and clinical settings (nursing homes, hospitals, rehabilitation centres). The Department of Recreation and Leisure Studies offers courses that can lead to achieving National Council of Therapeutic Recreation Certification (NCTRC).
