Parks and Recreation Management
Welcome to the Parks and Recreation Management Program
Northern Arizona University has been offering Bachelor of Science degrees in Recreation since 1961. We offered our online Parks and Recreation Management (PRM) Certificate in 2001 and the first accredited online Bachelor of Science degree in Parks and Recreation Management in 2003. We began offering innovative 2 year and 3 year degree completion progression plans in Fall of 2012. Additionally, the PRM program has offered a Masters of Science degree in Parks and Recreation since 2018. The PRM faculty have continually demonstrated a commitment to providing a unique, diverse and innovative student centered educational experience. The Parks and Recreation Management Program is located in the Geography, Planning and Recreation Department, a unit within the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences.
The PRM program is accredited by the Council on Accreditation of Parks, Recreation, Tourism and Related Professions (COAPRT) and is a member of the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA). Annual learning objective reports regarding our assessment and accreditation are located in our “About PRM web page”.
