In the RPTS department, undergraduate students focus their studies on one or more of the following emphasis areas: Tourism Management, Youth Development, Community Recreation & Park Administration, Event Management, Parks & Conservation and Hospitality Management.

Many undergraduate students in RPTS will be seeking post-graduation positions. During students’ college years, our degree plan requires an internship of at least 400 hours of work (for 6 university credits) with a company or organization related to the student’s emphasis area. Positions used for internship credit may be paid or unpaid, and may be comprised of full-time work for one semester or part-time work for two or more semesters. Some of our 75 graduate students plan to attend the Career Fair as well to find internship and long-term employment opportunities related to tourism, park & natural resource management, youth development and related fields.

Questions may be directed to Susan Scott at sgscott@tamu.edu or 979-845-5350.

Sponsored by the Department of Recreation, Park and Tourism Sciences (RPTS) at Texas A&M University and organized by students in the RPTS Council and event management classes.
