Certificate in Outdoor Adventure Administration
Units required for Certificate: 12
The certificate program in Outdoor Adventure Administration is for students wanting to provide the public with experiences and programs to play and learn in the great outdoors. Students will extend the general park and recreation management foundation of the Recreation Administration core with courses that teach adventure recreation programming and experiential education skills.
Completion of any of the program entitles a student to receive a certificate for that program in addition to the Bachelor of Science diploma. Certificates are officially recognized by the university and will appear on a student's transcript and may be listed on a student's résumé. Students must be declared RPTA majors or minors in order to enroll in the certificate programs. If a student fails to complete the major or minor, the certificate will not be awarded. All units must be taken in Recreation, Parks & Tourism Administration.
Bachelor of Science students: In addition to complete the requirements for the Bachelor of Science degree in Recreation Administration, students may also complete one or more of the certificate programs. Units in the certificates may overlap with required and supportive courses in the major.
Minor students: With advisor approval, students in the RPTA Minor Program may take courses in the certificate programs to partially fulfill the requirements of the minor (please read all of the minor requirements above). Students must complete all of the requirements for the minor to receive the certificate.
