Recreation and Leisure Studies professionals deliver health, social, economic and environmental benefits through leisure services, program offered by Brock University.


The Recreation and Leisure Studies program is offered by Brock University and you may choose one of the following areas of concentration:

Community Recreation studies leisure services in diverse and changing communities, including management, community development and the needs of participants.

Outdoor Recreation focuses on leadership in the natural environment. You'll prepare to serve as a wilderness trip leader, facilitate groups in outdoor recreation settings, work in outdoor and experiential education environments and promote social and environmental change in the world. Activities include lectures, outdoor and experiential activities and small group work.

Therapeutic Recreation is focused on the goal of ensuring that all individuals, regardless of ability, have access to meaningful leisure in their lives. You'll gain hands-on experience in providing services to marginalized individuals (people with disabilities and illnesses, recent immigrants, people who experience poverty and older adults) using leisure to improve functional abilities and quality of life.
