Indiana University announces a new online Master of Science emphasizing parks and public lands management.
The Department of Recreation, Park, and Tourism Studies (RPTS), in collaboration with Indiana University's award-winning Eppley Institute for Parks and Public Lands, will use the Institute's long- standing knowledge and experience working with park agencies such as the National Park Service (NPS) to deliver a cogent, relevant, and powerful master's degree to students across the state, the nation, and the globe.
The online approach to this degree is designed to attract working professionals who seek advanced education while remaining in the field. The degree is a non-thesis track that culminates in a capstone project. Capstone projects allow students to apply theoretical concepts to real-world applications that benefit the field.
This degree, embedded in the Eppley Institute for Parks and Public Lands, gives park and public land professionals the opportunity to obtain an advanced degree while continuing their real-world operations. Combining the strengths of Indiana University's 65-year-old RPTS graduate program, the Eppley Institute, and the emerging School of Public Health--with its focus on health and the importance of parks and public lands--adds to Indiana University's ever-growing alumni in park, recreation, and public land agencies across the nation.
