The undergraduate program in Recreation Administration offered at University of Minnesota Twin Cities prepares students to assume leadership, supervisory, or beginning administrative responsibilities, and design and deliver recreation programs to diverse populations in a variety of settings.


In addition to the general education requirements, core professional courses give students a firm foundation in the recreation field. Students further define their career interests by selecting focus electives that allow them to combine recreation with other disciplines such as health and wellness, social work, youth studies, sports management, outdoor education and tourism. 
 The program features a 9-credit internship experience, which allows students to integrate theory and practical applications in the field. Students select an organization that will provide an experiential learning opportunity in their specific area of interest. 
Graduates may find employment in such locations as nonprofits (YMCA, Campfire, Boy Scouts of America, etc.), parks at the municipal, state, or national level, commercial recreation, outdoor education and natural resources, outdoor recreation and tourism, as well as corporate wellness, campus and military recreation and event management
