Program Information

School:University of Waterloo
Faculty:Faculty of Health
Degree:Bachelor; Co-op; Honours
Field of Study:Therapeutic Recreation/Recreational Therapy
Description:Discover how recreation can improve quality of life for everyone, including people with physical disabilities, people with developmental disabilities, older adults, patients in long-term care, and at-risk youth. In Waterloo's program - one of only three in Ontario - you'll learn how to develop recreation activities and leisure opportunities for people with varying abilities. Not to mention you can apply what you've learned in paid co-op work terms.

By the time you graduate, you'll have the knowledge and skills to make a real difference. As a recreation therapist, the programs you design and run can help teenagers stay off drugs, empower seniors to live more independently, improve the long-term health of stroke patients, and more.

Through Waterloo's co-op program, you'll earn money, have access to North America's largest selection of co-op jobs, and graduate with up to 2 years of valuable work experience.
