May 2018 courses

Course Descriptions

This course is an introduction to the fundamental concepts of leisure and outdoor recreation and how they influence us as individuals and as a society. The influence of leisure throughout life is reviewed. Also, the use of leisure to experience the outdoors (nature) and its influence on the human condition is examined.  Leisure will be explored to discover how it shapes our growth as humans, our feeling, health, and actions.

This course will engage students in topics relating to environmental and social justice. We will explore socio-environmental issues related to various regions of our planet in the classroom and then gain a deeper and broader understanding of the causes and implications of these issues in relation to human societies through an immersive travel experience to that region. The specific content and travel destination may change from year to year.
