Degree in Leisure

ACS Distance Education (UK) has combined with Warnborough College (Ireland) to introduce a Bachelor of Arts in Leisure Management (BA.LM) degree. The program has been specially structured so that it meets the academic requirements for those seeking a career in this profession in any part of the world.

Students examine the role of leisure in today's society by looking at various leisure industry operations, leisure management issues and evaluating current industry operation. The program also looks at the role of leisure in society and provides a deeper understanding of the issues between work and play. It also focuses on the broad area of recreation activity and recreation resource management. It investigates recreation participation and practice - how recreation is managed in protected areas, the operations of recreation facilities and how recreation activity is planned.
