Program of Study

A Master of Science in Recreation degree with a major in park and public lands management provides students with approaches to managing land-based operations at the national, state, regional, and local levels. The program emphasizes leadership and stewardship of lands and facilities balanced with public enjoyment of parks and facilities. Employing contemporary practices that balance resource protection with recreation and use of lands, this MS degree is embedded in Indiana University’s Eppley Institute for Parks and Public Lands whose partnerships with the National Park Service (NPS), state park departments, and municipalities across the nation allow students in this program to learn from these agency personnel.
