This class introduces the student to recreation and leisure literature,
philosophies, theories, history, basic concepts, and professional
organizations. Note: this is a required course for all Department of
Recreation and Park Administration majors. In addition, it is an approved
humanities elective for many schools and departments on campus.
The course offers an introduction to leisure from the viewpoint of the
individual as a consumer and of agencies as providers. The student can
expect to better understand and appreciate the importance of leisure to
their own and society's wellbeing. Also, because leisure is a major
industry in the world, the course provides an overview of the management
of valuable recreation, park, sport, and tourism resources.
