Letter from the Director
Welcome to Parks, Recreation, and Tourism!
Our students, faculty, and staff are dedicated to enhancing quality of life through the provision of healthy, fulfilling, and sustainable leisure and tourism opportunities and management of the resources visited for these pursuits. We do this through undergraduate and graduate education of student majors who want to do something positive for our planet and all its inhabitants. If you choose to join us in this quest, I am confident you will find PRT and the University of Utah an excellent setting for your undergraduate or graduate studies.
The professional possibilities in the parks, recreation, and tourism are endless. We are a dedicated group of faculty and staff and trust our program will facilitate skills, knowledge, and experiences, to prepare you for a rewarding profession and lifetime opportunities to create and influence positive change in society.
So take a moment to meet our faculty and explore our program. We welcome you and your passion for our profession to the University of Utah!
