Also, be sure to check out our Accelerated Bachelors to Masters (ABM) Program. Students accepted into the ABM can take up to four graduate classes that count both for the B.S. in Leisure, Sport, and Tourism Studies (LSTS) and M.S. in Leisure and Sport Management (LSM) at no additional cost! Both our undergraduate LSTS and graduate LSM programs give professionals opportunities that range from running their own facilities to becoming athletic directors—and everything in between. The exciting Leisure, Sport, and Tourism Studies program offers a range of career opportunities from recreation and sport and tourism management to outdoor leadership. This ever-changing field requires skilled, versatile professionals with expertise in customer service and personnel management. Students have access to real world experience ranging from internships at state parks to study abroad trips to places such as Ireland, France, and Italy where visits to historic parks and museums help students gain a better understanding of tourism.
