Outdoor Recreation: Transfer

This Outdoor Recreation program is designed to prepare students for careers in the growing fields of outdoor adventure, outdoor programming, outdoor and experiential education and the application of outdoor recreation.

Careers

There are many career opportunities for outdoor recreation majors, including: tourism and leisure services (hostels, hotels, restaurants, resorts, guiding), municipal recreation (city and school-based recreation programs); therapeutic recreation for special populations, and outdoor and adventure occupations.

Transfer Guide

Douglas County is a perfectly suited environment for this type of program. After completing the two-year degree requirements, students are encouraged to continue their education at either: Oregon State University Cascades (Bend) Campus, University of Idaho in Moscow, Eastern Washington University in Cheney, or Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff.

Students planning to transfer in Outdoor Recreation should work closely with UCC advisers and representatives from the school(s) to which they may transfer. There may be special requirements for specific programs or schools.

• Seamless, direct transfer degrees
• Expert faculty dedicated to teaching
• Personal attention and small class sizes
