Recreation and Leisure Studies is one of VWC's largest and fastest-growing majors.  This dynamic major combines classroom and experiential learning to merge the liberal arts and career interests.  The course offerings in Recreation and Leisure Studies are designed to provide meaningful and effective learning experiences for major and non-major students alike.  The interdisciplinary major in the Recreation and Leisure Studies Department should be of particular interest to students who anticipate careers in recreation professions. By combining the concepts, skills, and perspectives of recreation and leisure studies courses with carefully selected elective courses, students may expect to meet the intent of a liberal arts degree in addition to their career objectives in the recreation profession.  A combination of academic study and practical experience will provide the basis for the development of personal leadership, supervisory, and administrative skills.  Please check the links to the left for additional information.
