22 credit hours required.
The Therapeutic Recreation minor will prepare students to assist special populations (those with physical, emotional or intellectual challenges) to engage in backcountry recreation activities. Activities such as hiking, camping and other outdoor activities are a means for special populations to use their leisure time in engaging, healthy and meaningful ways.
A minimum of 22 hours of credit is required of all students seeking a Therapeutic Recreation minor. Students must earn at least a 2.0 in each course to receive credit for the minor.
This minor is open to all students regardless of major. Students may use (i.e., “double count”) only two courses to fulfill requirements for both the minor and their major.
To declare the Therapeutic Recreation minor, contact the chair of the Department of Community Health or the Wilderness Education Coordinator.
