The Department of Therapeutic Recreation is composed of three degrees: a B.S. in Therapeutic Recreation, an Ed.M. in Therapeutic Recreation, and an interdisciplinary Ph.D. in Health Studies with a cognate concentration in Therapeutic Recreation.  Recreation therapists use recreation and leisure activities to facilitate recovery, health, and wellness in individuals with disabilities. The primary goal of the undergraduate program is to prepare entry-level recreation therapists to deliver rehabilitation, health promotion, and disease prevention programs to individuals with disabilities.  Alumni of Temple’s therapeutic recreation degree programs can be found in a wide range of health and human services agencies.  They are employed in diverse settings, including hospitals, rehabilitation centers, nursing homes, assisted-living facilities, schools, and community recreation agencies. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, employment opportunities are expected to continue growing in the residential and outpatient settings that serve disabled persons, the elderly, or those diagnosed with mental retardation, mental illness, or substance abuse problems, including community care facilities for the elderly (including assisted-living facilities), residential mental retardation, mental health, and substance abuse facilities; and facilities that provide individual and family services (such as day-care centers for the disabled persons and the elderly).

Mission of the Department

The Department of Therapeutic Recreation strives to be a world class academic and research unit committed to advancing the role of play, recreation, and leisure opportunities in health promotion, rehabilitation and disease prevention for diverse individuals with chronic illnesses and disabilities across the life span.  The department provides exceptional educational experiences, conducts discipline-expanding research, and contributes to society via programs that explore and test evidenced-based innovations in practice and policy.  The department’s mission includes:

  • Instilling knowledge, values, ethics and skills that will guide students in their future academic pursuits and their professional practice in therapeutic recreation at the local, national and international levels;
  • Being a leading contributor to the ever-changing knowledge base in health, leisure, and disability studies through research and other scholarly activities;
  • Providing innovative and responsive educational opportunities, research and service in collaboration with local, regional, and national agencies and organizations; and,
  • Fostering interdisciplinary collaborations to promote a better understanding of the importance of physically and socially active lifestyles to health, well-being and quality of life.

Central to the overall mission of the Department of Therapeutic Recreation is a commitment to access and diversity.  This is realized through a commitment to ensuring equal access to all qualified applicants (students and faculty) and a commitment to promoting equal access to recreation and leisure opportunities for all people regardless of age, economics, race, gender, culture, sexual orientation, religion or abilities.

 

Certification

Following satisfactory completion of all coursework and internship requirements, graduates with the Bachelor of Science degree in Therapeutic Recreation are eligible to sit for the national certifying examination in therapeutic recreation administered by Educational Testing Services and the National Council on Therapeutic Recreation Certification.

Therapeutic Recreation - Bachelor of Science

A Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Therapeutic Recreation is awarded to students upon satisfactory completion of a minimum of 121 semester hours of credit with a minimum GPA of 2.0 overall and 2.5 in the major. Students completing this degree are eligible to sit for the national credentialing examination for recreation therapists.

Core-to-Core Transfer Curriculum

The following course sequencing for Fall and Spring transfers is based on meeting Temple University's Core-to-Core Transfer requirements for students with an approved associate degree from a community college with an approved Core-to-Core agreement.  (See Core Transfer programs at www.temple.edu/bulletin/Academic_programs/core/transfer_programs/core_transfer_programs.shtm). If your transfer courses do not include coursework in anatomy and physiology, human growth and development, and abnormal psychology, you will be required to take these courses as part of your B.S. degree. In some instances, the general elective requirements identified may be used to meet this requirement. Students should check with their academic advisor and faculty mentor regularly to make certain they are meeting all requirements to be eligible for graduation.
