Wingate University community and commercial recreation majors are active. In the classroom, they spend time learning the theory and practice that goes into producing quality recreational programs, while they’re also engaged in numerous hands-on experiential learning opportunities on and off campus.

A key part of the community and commercial recreation experience is a full-time summer internship between your junior and senior years. As part of the process of applying for an internship, you get the chance to update your résumé and learn networking techniques from alumni in the recreation, leisure and sport industry. By the time you graduate, you will have at least 400 hours of field experience, including the three-credit-hour summer internship.
