Administrative Assistant Sandra Notar 905-688-5550, extension 3259 Academic South 357 brocku.ca/applied-health-sciences/academic-departments/rec-leisure The Department of Recreation and Leisure Studies offers four-year programs of study leading to a Bachelor of Recreation and Leisure Studies Honours and a Bachelor of Recreation and Leisure Studies with Major. The Department also offers a three-year (Pass) program leading to a Bachelor of Recreation and Leisure Studies. The program is designed to qualify graduates for a wide range of positions in the rapidly expanding field of leisure services. The Community Recreation program prepares students with the knowledge, competencies, and philosophical grounding to take leadership roles in the community sector. Courses prepare students for effective practice in public and non-profit settings with courses in organizational development, finance, marketing, programming, planning, and research. Community development and responsiveness to diversity are emphasized, particularly of youth and groups that are marginalized. Fieldwork opportunities and community engagement are embedded throughout the curriculum. The Outdoor Recreation program focuses on leadership in the natural environment. This program provides students with the skills, knowledge and dispositions necessary to serve as wilderness trip leaders, to facilitate groups in outdoor recreation settings, to work in a variety of outdoor and experiential education environments, and to serve as agents of social and environmental change in the world. All classroom and field-based activities include lectures, outdoor and experiential activities, and small group work. Students can receive credit for participating in extended outdoor recreation field experiences offered by Outward Bound Canada, the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS), Wilderness Medical Associates, Leaders of the Day and agencies. Students must consult departments before registering with the sponsoring agency and are responsible for registration, transportation and fees associated with the experience. The Therapeutic Recreation program prepares students to work with individuals with disabilities, illnesses and other limiting conditions to support them to achieve independence and full engagement in meaningful life activities through positive leisure involvement. These aims are achieved through client-centred individual and/or group interventions designed to teach skills, improve functional capacities, support psychosocial adaptation and address underlying issues that impact or limit participation in meaningful life activities, particularly leisure. The department offers courses that can lead to achieving certification through the National Council on Therapeutic Recreation Certification (NCTRC). Students who wish to achieve certification must complete 3.0 credits of supportive coursework in the broad area of human services. Supportive course areas may include adapted physical education, education, human biological/physical sciences, psychology, sociology, health related issues, communication, and human behaviours and problems. Courses must be from outside the Department of Recreation and Leisure Studies.
