The University of Toledo offers the country’s best value degree in recreational therapy, according to College Values Online.
UT’s bachelor of science degree in recreational therapy is listed No. 1 by the website in its rankings of the 30 best parks, recreation and leisure degree programs in the United States.
UT ranked highest based on the criteria of low tuition, high return on investment, high percentage of students receiving financial aid, and the number of minors, concentrations and areas of emphasis offered within the program.
“Parks, recreation, tourism and hospitality is a massive global industry, and a degree from a reputable university in your specific area of interest can get you off to a great start,” College Values Online editors wrote. “In today’s economy, with student debt piling up ever higher on graduates, value is an important consideration. Cost, financial aid, program flexibility, and return on investment are all major concerns. That’s why we focus not just on the quality, but the value of the degree programs in our ranking.”
The editors noted UT’s Recreational Therapy Program is accredited by the Council on Accreditation of Parks, Recreation, Tourism and Related Professions, and offers concentrations in pre-occupational therapy, therapeutic arts, geriatrics, pediatrics and communication.
