    BS in Recreation Resources Management

    The Recreation Resource Management degree prepares students for careers in managing outdoor recreation settings. Students who pursue this degree might work as an outdoor recreation planner or resource interpreter at a national forest or rangeland, state or national park, or designated wilderness area. Other students work in tourism and recreation businesses. Because these jobs require an understanding of both the land itself and the people who visit these areas, this degree offers a solid foundation in both the biological and social sciences. More information on this degree can be found here.
