BS in Recreation and Park Management

The Recreation and Park Management (RPM) program is accredited by the Council on Accreditation for Recreation, Parks, Tourism, and Related Professions. Students who want to declare a major in recreation and park management at the time of entrance into the degree need to have completed 30 s.h. of coursework at ECU or in transfer credits; possess a minimum overall GPA of 2.0; have completed MATH 1065 or 1066 or higher-level MATH for which MATH 1065 is a prerequisite, have completed a brief, written application (available at www.ecu.edu/rcls); and have met with an adviser in the College of Health and Human Performance Advising Center (located in the Belk Annex). Following admission, the student is required to schedule a meeting with his or her RPM faculty mentor. Students majoring in recreation and park management must maintain a minimum cumulative 2.0 GPA and a minimum cumulative 2.0 overall GPA in all core and cognate courses to remain in good standing. Majors must earn a minimum grade of C (2.0) in all required core and cognate RCLS prefix courses. If a non-RCLS prefix course is approved as a substitution for a required core or cognate RCLS prefix course, a minimum grade of C (2.0) must be earned. Students dropping below the required 2.0 GPA will not be allowed to enroll in any additional RCLS prefix courses. If a student receives a grade lower than a C (2.0) in a required core or cognate RCLS prefix course, the student can re-take it without meeting the 2.0 GPA requirements. Students graduating from the RPM program are eligible to sit for the national examination to become a Certified Park and Recreation Professional (CPRP) and thereby acquire this valuable credential for professional advancement.

BS in Recreational Therapy

The Recreational Therapy program is accredited by the Committee on Accreditation for Recreational Therapy Education. Any student wishing to declare a major in recreational therapy (RT) must, at the time of entrance into the curriculum, possess a minimum 2.0 GPA; have no more than 10 s.h. of foundations curriculum remaining; have submitted an application; have a personal interview with a faculty member; and have completed a sequencing form (timetable) in consultation with a RCTX advisor in the HHP Advising Center and their faculty mentor. Prior to registering for 4000 level RCTX courses, all RT students are required to complete the ‘Recreational Therapy Career Exploration Experience’. This requires 60 documented hours of directed experience assisting with recreational therapy programs and recreation or allied health based services to persons with disabilities. Information relating to this process is provided via department web site, through the HHP advising center and through the RCTX faculty. Admission to recreational therapy is competitive and limited due to space availability. Majors must maintain a minimum cumulative 2.0 GPA and a minimum cumulative 2.0 GPA in all cognate courses to remain in good standing. Majors must earn a minimum grade of C (2.0) in all required RCLS and RCTX courses. A student wishing to appeal should contact the RCLS department chair within two weeks of notification of academic deficiency. Graduates are eligible to apply to sit for the examination to become credentialed nationally as a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist (CTRS) and Licensed Recreational Therapist (LRT) in North Carolina.
