RTTR Interns return to campus to share their experiences with the faculty and students.
(RTTR 399 / up to 12 semester hours)
The internship experience has been designed to serve as a practical vehicle of transition for students to make the change from classroom to recreation/tourism/therapeutic recreation settings. Within the structured environment of a university approved agency/site and under the direct supervision of a university approved professional in the field, the student receives guidance in transitioning from the academic setting to the role of an employee in a “real life” worksite.
RT interns: complete a 480 hour (12 consecutive weeks) or 600 hour (15 consecutive weeks) placement under the supervision of a qualified recreation specialist
TR interns: complete a 600 hour (15 consecutive weeks) placement under the supervision of a qualified recreation specialist.
