Indiana University announces an 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 to deliver a cogent, relevant, and powerful M.S. to students across the state, the nation, and, potentially, 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 with a capstone project. Capstone projects allow students to apply theoretical concepts to real-world applications that benefit the field.
By collaborating with a strong academic department, students will have an unprecedented opportunity to learn from leading academics and professionals who have experience managing agencies in the field.
Embedded in the Eppley Institute for Parks and Public Lands, the degree allows park and public land professionals the opportunity to obtain an advanced degree while continuing their real-world operations.
The online degree draws on the Eppley Institute's expertise and its experience working with such agencies as the National Park Service; the strengths of Indiana University's 65-year-old Department of Recreation, Park, and Tourism Studies; and the emerging IU School of Public Health and its renewed focus on the role of parks and public lands in promoting health and wellness.
