Over the course of the past two years the Council on Accreditation for Parks, Recreation, Tourism and Related Professionals (COAPRT) has been reviewing opportunities for further development and enhancement of accreditation related to our profession. During this time, the Council has developed a concept to accredit master’s degree programs in parks, recreation, tourism and related professions.Within the Council there has been much input and dialogue on this concept, and now we are requesting input from accredited programs. Your input will be used to enhance and modify the standards and to make a final determination if COAPRT should proceed with accrediting master’s degrees in the field. If you have any questions on the concept outside of what is provided in the survey, please contact Chris Nunes, Ph.D, CPRE at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your time and thoughts on this matter, it is essential to helping us determine the next steps and to improve upon the initial concept.
