What are some of your favourite memories? Setting off on family vacation? Crossing the finish line at a charity race? Watching your home team score the winning goal? These activities all represent recreation and leisure pursuits - and we educate the people who make these moments happen.

Recreation and Leisure Studies at Waterloo is one of the most established programs of its kind in Canada, and the first to offer the co-op system of education. You’ll benefit from learning in a department that has been educating recreation professionals for over 40 years.

With majors in Recreation and Leisure StudiesRecreation and Sport Business,Therapeutic Recreation, and Tourism and Parks Management, and options in Tourism and Parks, you'll be able to tailor a program that’s right for you.
