Why study outdoor recreation management at CapU?
British Columbia has never had a higher profile as a tourist destination, with visitors from around the world seeking out the grandeur of the province’s pristine scenery and our array of outdoor activities – from hiking, skiing, climbing and biking on our glorious mountains to sailing, kayaking, diving and surfing on the ocean or camping and viewing wildlife at destinations throughout BC.
This trend is creating ever more demand for people with education and training in outdoor recreation.
Potential employers include tourism companies and recreation organizations, with additional opportunities in federal, provincial and municipal governments or working in national, provincial and regional parks. And since our programs emphasize entrepreneurial skills, you can also strike out on your own and start a business.
Capilano University’s North Vancouver campus is the best place in the world to study outdoor recreation, situated as we are among the North Shore mountains – renowned for their hiking, skiing and mountain biking opportunities and sheltered ocean inlets hosting the whole range of water sports.
