Что я буду изучать?

This program places graduates at the intersection of two growing, exciting, and globally significant areas of theory and practice: leisure and sustainability. The program prepares emerging leaders to examine and create solutions, which ensure that residents and travelers alike can enjoy recreational experiences, natural and cultural amenities, heritage resources, and adventure as part of their life experiences on a sustainable basis. Students will engage in coursework delivered in a non–traditional, international educational setting where the instructional approach draws upon field experience, classroom instruction, and experiential styles of learning. Two integrated instructional streams are central to the program focus: 1) a set of principles and practices underlying leisure and sustainability; and, 2) an integrated set of research capabilities, innovation, and knowledge mobilization skills necessary to ensure that new knowledge can be effectively transformed into impact.

During completion of the program, students will:

acquire a broad interdisciplinary knowledge of concepts, models and issues relating to the field of leisure services;
analyze sustainability issues by integrating social, environmental and economic perspectives;
develop and critique policies and practices that advance sustainability goals;
apply strategies to influence change and innovation at the community, regional, national and international levels;
develop the capacity to actively engage in a variety of knowledge creation and mobilization approaches and strategies;
engage with diverse stakeholders on complex leisure and sustainability issues; and
formulate a personal and professional commitment to strategic and innovative leadership practices in sustainable leisure services.

Career Opportunities

The career path of individuals of this credential will largely depend on their undergraduate degree; however, they will be uniquely positioned with an understanding of innovative practices in the leisure industry for achieving environmental, social, and economic sustainability.
