A Bachelor of Science in Recreation from the University of Idaho prepares you to lead public and private programs that are designed to encourage active lifestyles. As a graduate of the only accredited recreation program in the state and one of three in the Pacific Northwest, you will have the credentials needed for national certification, and the expertise and training to improve the health of people of all ages.
With this nation's increasing overweight and obese population, an active lifestyle is more crucial than ever. Students in the recreation program develop the specialized skills and knowledge to help people increase their fitness level and become healthier. You will learn to organize and schedule activities to maximize the use of facilities and monitor sites, oversee recreation activities for different age groups in a variety of settings, and direct programs that help people make good choices in using their leisure time.
