Program Overview

Recreation Management

The Recreation Management program at Allan Hancock College is designed to prepare you for mid-level positions in the field of recreation immediately after graduation. If you are already employed in the recreation and tourism industry, a degree in recreation management can provide you with educational requirements often needed for advancement to more responsible and higher paying positions. Our curriculum also meets the general requirements needed to transfer to a four-year institution to pursue a baccalaureate degree in recreation, hospitality or tourism management.

Graduates of the Recreation Management program will:

  • Apply recreational programming skill sets for public, private, nonprofit, therapeutic and commercial settings
  • Use learned leadership skills in a team building environment

SPOTLIGHT

Ivan Lucatero

Ivan Lucatero
Cal Poly SLO, Aerospace Engineering

I excelled in math and science in school, so engineering was the right fit and I just had to figure out how to get it done. Throughout high school, I took courses at Allan Hancock College (AHC), and graduated as my high school valedictorian. I then attended AHC in search of a smooth transition to a university. I was able to take my lower division engineering courses and form a great relationship with my professors. While at AHC, I received multiple scholarships form the Allan Hancock Foundation, Santa Barbara Foundation, and MESA-NSF Scholarship. I then attended California Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo, to pursue an aerospace engineering degree. After just one year at Cal Poly, I was accepted into one of the most prestigious internship programs that NASA offers, the Aeronautics Academy.
