Abstract

This study examines the Recreation curriculum at Southern Illinois University, utilizing data collected from both alumni and students. The purpose of this study was to determine whether the sample audience was satisfied with the course offerings in the department of recreation and whether the curriculum was meeting the needs of professionals. Data was collected using an electronic subscription service known as Survey Monkey. The results revealed that a majority of the respondents were satisfied with course offerings and felt as if though the curriculum met their needs as professionals. Recommendations include conducting more frequent studies, updating the current curriculum, and conducting a more thorough analysis of current curriculum.
