Inclusive Recreation Minor

The Americans with Disabilities Act mandates that agencies offering recreation programs must accommodate people with disabilities. The inclusive recreation minor prepares professionals from various disciplines to address concerns such as accessibility, knowledge of disabilities, appropriate programming, and adapting activities.

Persons employed in the following types of settings would benefit from this minor: play areas, recreation facilities such as amusement rides, boating facilities, fishing piers and platforms, miniature golf courses, golf courses, sporting facilities, swimming pools and spas, outdoor developed areas, YMCAs, and youth clubs. Persons involved in the following professions would benefit from this minor: recreation management, education, physical education, fitness, special education, health and wellness, psychology, business, sports management, and other social and human service areas.

The inclusive recreation minor is not a comprehensive therapeutic recreation curriculum, nor is it intended to lead toward national certification. The inclusive recreation minor is academic preparation to assist professionals who are interested in providing inclusive recreation programs.
