The Recreation and Tourism Management program emphasizes learning and leadership in a wide variety of environmental contexts. Students gain a broad understanding of leisure and recreation in our society while developing strong managerial skills. Our program prepares students for careers ranging from park interpreters to recreation resource managers, camp directors, municipal recreation directors, nature-based tourism providers, fitness center directors, and many more. Students take our program at UMM because they love the hands-on nature of the coursework, the fieldwork, the small class size, and the internships that gain them quality work experience by the time they graduate. Our students become very involved in campus and community stewardship and programming through many service projects over the course of their studies. These projects, such as the Washington County Special Olympics and the Machias Haunted Forest, allow the students to learn by experiencing while benefiting the local community.
