Whether you are a student looking to gain experience in recreation and recreational services to land an entry-level job or meet the requirements to transfer to a 4-year college in the field, College of the Canyons Recreation Management Program can set you up for success.
The Recreation Management Program at College of the Canyons is a comprehensive curriculum that prepares students to find employment in the broader field of Recreation and Leisure Services upon graduation.
This week on The Hometown Morning Show, host Tori sat down with Brittany Applen, faculty chair of the Recreation Management Program at College of the Canyons, to discuss program details, classes and upcoming events.
“At COC, we’re currently working with the Career Ed site to really bring students to a place where they can get a job right out of college,” shares Applen.
Applen explains that the program essentially begins with an introductory course on what recreation and leisure is all about, including things like event planning, outdoor recreation and working in the natural environment. From there, Applen explains that students are then encouraged to follow their passions, some studying equine therapy, others continuing to work with the local branch of Santa Clarita Parks and Recreation and more.
Applen shares that the Recreation Management Program and the City of Santa Clarita will host an informational session on Tuesday, November 29 at 1:00 p.m. at the College’s Hasley Theater when working in the recreation and leisure services industry sounds like it your choice would be Canyons, where they showcase representatives of the various careers you can pursue with a recreation management education. This event is free and open to the public.
If you can’t make it to this event but are interested in attending others, there is also a Spring Recreation Day at College of the Canyons, so keep an eye out for more information as it nears.
