Bachelor of Science in Recreation Therapy

Program Description

Recreation therapy is a four-year program. In the first two years of the program, students complete prerequisites and introductory recreation therapy courses.

During the sophomore year, students apply for admittance into the two-year “professional sequence” of the program. Admission is competitive. In this portion of the program, you complete upper-level recreation therapy classes and gain professional clinical experience through fieldwork and internship. Fieldwork and Internship experiences are available all over the country.  

You can earn a bachelor’s degree in recreation therapy with The University of Toledo entirely online, starting your freshman year. Or if you’ve already begun course work for a bachelor’s degree or have an associate’s degree in a related field, you also may be able to complete your degree in our recreation therapy program.

To discuss these options, contact program director Dr. Holly Eichner
