The Master of Parks, Recreation, and Tourism Management program is offered as an entirely online graduate degree program with an emphasis on the student who is already a practitioner in the field or looking to make a career change.
The degree is focused on giving the student a solid foundation of the theoretical underpinnings of the field while also developing the student's practical administrative and management skills. A thesis is not required for the online program.
Applications are taken on a rolling basis with preference given to students who meet the following deadlines:
The following requirements must be met to be considered for admission to the online Master of Science in Parks, Recreation, and Tourism Management:
The non-thesis M.S. in PRTM consists of 30 credit hours of online coursework — 4 core classes, 1 class in statistics, and 4 concentration classes. In addition, all students will be required to complete a 3 credit hour culminating project.
Up to 12 credits of graduate courses below the 8000-level may count toward the degree requirements as determined by the Graduate Committee. No more than 12 hours earned as a non-degree seeking student may count toward the M.S. (non-thesis) degree.
Coursework is offered through a combination of weekly, synchronous meetings in the evening and through Adobe Connect. Clemson's learning management system is used to deliver asynchronous course content. Courses are offered in six-week time intervals.
