About

The Department of Community and Therapeutic Recreation at University of North Carolina Greensboro offers a Master of Science degree in Parks and Recreation Management.  Students may choose one of the following two concentrations:  Community Recreation Management, or Therapeutic Recreation

Overview

The Parks and Recreation Management program offered by University of North Carolina Greensboro requires 36 credit hours, with at least one-half the work credited toward the degree in 600-level courses or above, an overall average of B (3.0), or better, and successful completion of a capstone experience (thesis, project, internship). 

The student, after discussing his/her career goals with his/her advisor, may choose either the thesis or non-thesis option. However, if the student selects the non-thesis option, the advisor will determine (based on amount of professional experience) whether the student does a project, internship, or both.  For example, a student choosing the non-thesis option and having minimal professional experience will be required to do an internship or an internship and project.
