Health, Physical Education and Recreation | Leisure in Modern Society
R340 | 18091 | Barbara Hawkins


Description of Course Content:

This course is designed to encourage students to develop a holistic
understanding of the significance of leisure and society.  Our world
is experiencing rapid changes related to leisure in regards to its
meaning, qualities, use, and delivery. These changes will cause
leisure services to either re-invent themselves or perish.  In order
to address these changes, this course will focus on five main
issues; values, demography, environment, economics, and community.
