University Majors

California State University, East Bay
Recreation B.S. - Recreation Management Option

The Recreation Management Option prepares students for management and leadership professional positions in public settings where increasing the quality of life through people, parks and programs is the main objective. Jobs include program directors and coordinators for sports, after -school, seniors, youth development, aquatics, adult services, preschool and teens. Many of our graduates are upper management leaders in East Bay leisure services organizations including Concord, Livermore, Oakland, Pleasanton, San Ramon, and East Bay Regional Parks (a small sample).

Job duties are varied and are focused on providing quality of life services in municipal, special districts, county, state and national park and recreation organizations. Many majors also work in the non-profit sector for YMCA, Boys and Girls Club and other youth organizations. Emerging opportunities with active senior living organizations owned and managed by hospitality leaders like Marriott and Hilton offer the chance to increase the quality of life of our aging population.
