PRT 358: The Recreation Program

PRT 358: The Recreation Program is a required capstone course for the Parks, Recreation and Tourism Management (PRTM) degree program. PRTM has a strong service-learning focus. In this course, students learn conceptual knowledge they apply to an authentic service project completed during the semester. Instructor Annette Moore realized written descriptions alone were not appealing to students when asked to select which client they wanted to work with. Moore wanted them to get a real sense of each place.
