School of Health and Human Sciences

The Department of Community and Therapeutic Recreation offers a unique program designed for qualified UNCG undergraduate students who are pursuing a B.S. in Recreation and Parks Management.

In the AMP program, students have the opportunity to graduate with a Bachelor of Science AND Master of Science degree, within a 5-year time period.

Not only does the student earn a M.S. degree in a shorter period of time, but they also save a substantial amount of money, since up to 12 credit hours of graduate-level AMP coursework will count toward their undergraduate degree.
