At Sacramento State, we are proud to be the oldest nationally accredited program of Recreation Administration in the CSU System. Our concentrations include Recreation and Park Management, Recreation Therapy, and Hospitality and Tourism Management. We also offer certificates in event planning, natural resources administration, outdoor adventure administration and non-profit administration. At over 160 students, our Recreation Therapy program is one of the largest in the western US. For almost 65 years, our program has been graduating our leaders in community and outdoor recreation management, event planning, non-profit agencies and so much more. Our programs provide students with exciting, broad-based curricula that include both stimulating in-class coursework and practical out-of-class field experience.
This year, the way we teach in our programs has changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We look forward to returning to our out-of-class field experiences, but for now we have had to adapt to all things virtual. Our students’ education has and will always be our top priority, and the department has been working to help all students during this challenging time. Students’ lives and way of learning has changed, and supporting the Recreation, Parks and Tourism Administration’s general fund will help our students thrive. We need your support. This fund allows the department chair to allocate funds to the greatest needs in the Department—and during these times those needs are focused on our students. So many students are experiencing financial hardship due to this pandemic and your support can directly and immediately help them. Thank you in advance for your support.
