Recreation Management

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
  • Apply and practice the skills for organizing event planning for community events
  • Apply the principles and theories of sports management for municipal, commercial and nonprofit agencies

ESL Spotlight

Rie Walden
UCSB Transfer Student

I moved to the United States in 2012. My English was very limited, so I decided to enroll in noncredit ESL courses in the summer of that same year. By fall of 2013 after hard work and dedication, I was ready to transition to credit ESL. The sooner I started credit ESL the better, but as a new California resident the tuition was more expensive since I had to pay out of state tuition, so I decided to wait for a year to attend credit class at AHC. AHC has great student support programs that I utilized; for example, AIM, EOPS, CAN/TRIO, and the Tutorial Center. I recommend everyone to take advantage of these services and to ask for help from your instructors when needed.
