The Stevenson Center is excited to announce our newest Fellows master’s degree—kinesiology and recreation!

Prospective Peace Corps Fellows and Applied Community and Economic Development (ACED) Fellows can now select the ACED sequence in the School of Kinesiology and Recreation. The degree program focuses on management and marketing of leisure services, concepts and trends in recreation and sport, and designing recreation experiences.

Fellows in kinesiology and recreation will bring the same substantive experience to campus as Fellows in our existing degree programs—applied economics, political science, and sociology—having worked with organizations such as the Peace Corps and AmeriCorps. Along with the other Fellows and Master’s International students, they will delve deeply into development issues through a year on campus followed by full-time professional practice.

The Stevenson Center is recruiting our first Fellows in kinesiology and recreation to start in August. Their unique perspectives and skill sets will enrich the interdisciplinary ACED sequence. This new partnership not only adds breadth to our students’ areas of study but also marks the center’s first degree program within the College of Applied Sciences and Technology.

“The School of Kinesiology and Recreation looks forward to offering the ACED sequence through its new partnership with the Stevenson Center,” said Barbara Schlatter, kinesiology and recreation professor and returned Peace Corps volunteer (youth development, Guatemala 1984–1986).
