The lower division courses for these three areas of concentration are basically the same. Therefore, we have listed them under a common heading in the program of study. The student is advised to check with Minnesota West-Worthington campus counseling staff for the exact requirements for the four-year college he/she intends to attend.

Recreation/Parks Administration majors may specialize in one of several areas of concentration. The area desired should be determined while in attendance at Minnesota West in order to meet the transfer requirements. Additional credits in business courses may be in order for some receiving colleges. The curriculum requirements below meet the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (MnTC) requirements.
