Recreation and Sport Management with Recreation Administration Concentration
Nine-Semester Plan

The Recreation Administration concentration in Recreation and Sport Management is exempt from eight-semester degree plans because students are recommended to register for RESM 440V Internship after the completion of their course work and recreation agencies have their busiest season in the summer. The following nine-semester plan, however, will guide students who wish to graduate in four years.

Students must complete the  State Minimum Core requirements as outlined in the Catalog of Studies. The courses that meet the state minimum core also fulfill many of the university's General Education requirements, although there are additional considerations to satisfy the general education learning outcomes. Students are encouraged to consult with their academic adviser when making course selections.


Course MUST have 'C' or better to award degree credit.


If ECON 2013 & ECON 2023 are taken, reduce RESM Related Electives by 3 hours to meet 120.
