Starting this fall, Georgia Highlands College students can pursue a degree in recreation administration at GHC. The new two-year pathway prepares students for future work and management with recreation centers, parks, cruise ships, gyms and other facilities that provide recreation and leisure services to the general public.
The new program was created based on the increased demand for recreation administrators across Northwest Georgia, said Lisa Jellum, department chair of kinesiology and wellness. Three new courses have been added to the department’s schedule and all kinesiology and wellness faculty are credentialed in the area.
Students will graduate with an associate degree in recreation administration. Potential careers for graduates include athletic coordinator, park ranger, resort manager, activity coordinator, cruise director and more.
