Parks, Recreation, & Tourism Program

Parks, Recreation, and Tourism undergraduate and graduate programs prepare students in a wide array of fields concerned with social, environmental, and economic aspects of society.

Numerous recreation businesses, hospitals, and public agencies support the curriculum by providing advisory council members and by providing opportunities for student internships and employment. Parks, Recreation, and Tourism is part of a warm, western setting where people are outgoing and friendly, and where learning is loved.

Located on the northeastern edge of Salt Lake City, our 1,500 acre campus reaches to the foothills of the majestic Wasatch Mountains. Over 25,000 students represent all 50 states and many foreign countries. More than 2,000 clinical, adjunct, research, and visiting faculty serve the student body.

Utah is the West at its best: four distinct seasons, ready access to all outdoor activities including superb skiing at eight world-famous resorts just minutes from campus. Utah is home to five national parks and countless national, regional, state, and local recreation areas. Salt Lake City, with a metropolitan population of 650,000, is the hub of the Intermountain West.
