Return to All Programs of Study Alphabetical Return to: All Programs of Study Alphabetical

Students who intend to seek a career in Parks, Tourism, and Recreation Management can complete most of the first two pre-professional years of study at FVCC to ready themselves for the junior year at The University of Montana - Missoula.  The University of Montana College of Forestry and Conservation Parks, Tourism, and Recreation Management option is designed to prepare students for professional positions developing and managing nature-based recreation experiences and park resources for public land  management agencies, nonprofit organizations, and the nature-based tourism industry.

Students take courses that lead to an understanding of the basic ecological characteristics of recreational lands. Students also take courses dealing with human behavior and management.

The Associate of Science (AS) degree requires 60 credits at FVCC, and the Bachelor of Science (BS) degree at Montana University System (MUS) colleges and universities requires 120 credits. FVCC students can usually earn as many as 75-85 credits in preparation for many transfer majors, thus reducing the number of credits required for the BS degree at MUS schools. Also, by earning the AS degree from FVCC, students will have satisfied the lower division General Education Core (see General Education Requirements  for requirements) for all MUS institutions and will not be required to meet additional lower division general education core requirements upon transfer. The suggested course load in AS programs is rigorous and is recommended for only the most prepared students. A more moderate semester credit load can be achieved by taking general education core courses during summer terms or completing one or two additional semesters at FVCC before transfer.

The information on all transfer programs is subject to change. Students should see their advisor to explore other possibilities not specifically listed in the program.
