Recreation, Park, and Tourism Management Student Engagement Experience
Purpose: The purpose of the Student Engagement Experience in Recreation, Park, and Tourism Management (RPTM) is to provide students with opportunities to develop competencies outside of the classroom and in support of curriculum learning objectives, under the supervision of a faculty member or professional in RPTM. Further, the experience in RPTM provides students with opportunities to prepare for the 480 hour, 12-week professional internship (RPTM 495A).
All students are required to complete a 50 hour/point work experience in an agency, on-site, under the direction of a professional in RPTM. The remaining 250 points may be selected from the attached menu.
Procedure: Students will be required to earn 300 engagement points prior to registering for RPTM 495A. Documentation of each experience (using the Student Engagement Checklist and support documentation) must be submitted with the other internship pre-requisites including CPR/First Aid certification, academic audit (demonstrating a 2.0+ GPA, completion of RPTM 356 and an earned C or better in RPTM 394).
Note: Students should consider the selection of their experience(s) as preparation for and in support of career goals.
