The School of Recreation, Health, and Tourism (SRHT) offers exciting, career-ready majors in dynamic fields such as athletic training, tourism and events management, health and physical education, kinesiology, sport management, and recreation management. SRHT features renowned faculty, cutting-edge research, six laboratories and centers, and a diverse student body of more than 1,000 undergraduate and graduate students each year. Each major requires one or more internship or clinical experiences, ensuring that students graduate not just with a transcript but with a resume that demonstrates their professional aptitude and skills.

As globalization barrels forward, learning a foreign language becomes ever more important and beneficial for students.

The 27-credit Foreign Language Licensure graduate certificate assists students in developing a reflective stance toward practice and to enhance ability to address critical issues in language and learning. It is designed to provide an interdisciplinary, theory based course of study for initial licensure candidates and provisionally licensed foreign language teachers. The certificate also advances fundamental understanding about language, technology, pedagogy, and culture, as well as issues related to diversity in schools and in society at large. Students may select Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Korean, Latin, or Spanish.

Note: Students must earn grades of B or higher in all coursework.
