Welcome to the Recreation Management Graduate Program at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse


The Master of Science in Recreation Management is a multidisciplinary program of advanced study designed to prepare graduates for careers in the public, private non-profit, and the commercial sectors of the recreation profession. With three curricular options (thesis, graduate project, or internship), the program serves both students with extensive recreation backgrounds and students who are looking to a masters program as their gateway into the recreation field. Please visit the websites that introduce you to the recreation management program, our graduate faculty, and the opportunities at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, then contact me at 608-785-8214 or jholland@uwlax.edu with additional questions.

Thank you for your interest,

My graduate studies at UWL were exactly what I was looking for - a supportive and encouraging learning environment with enough flexibility to allow me to direct my own studies. The faculty were outstanding, providing me with the right tools and guidance to accomplish everything I desired.
