Magnuson publishes in MN Recreation and Parks
Dr. Connie Magnuson, lecturer in Kinesiology and coordinator of the B.S. in Recreation, Park, and Leisure Studies, wrote a feature article for the December issue of Minnesota Recreation and Parks. In "New Learning Opportunities at the University of Minnesota, she describes the new curriculum adopted this fall semester and the array of activities and partnerships that students experience as part of their program. "The new flexibility in the curriculum allows students to design their specific program to match their personal career goals," explains Dr. Magnuson. "Courses in landscape design, human resources, tourism, sustainability, forestry ...and many others are now possible options that were not available in the past." The new curriculum also includes online recreation course offerings to answer today's students' need for more flexible scheduling.
