Students who complete their undergraduate work but desire further education in their chosen field often decide to pursue a Master of Arts degree. Completion of an MA program gives scholars greater insight and a deeper understanding of their discipline.

What is an MA in Leisure Studies? While the name may imply a coursework in relaxation, students who go through this program can develop the skills necessary to lead tourism and cultural businesses and associations for destinations across the world. As the world becomes smaller and travel between countries becomes easier and more affordable, demand grows for experienced professionals who can lead teams that deliver great experiences to visitors and tourists.

Program participants can build excellent business management skills that allow them to lead large teams of skilled professionals effectively. They also may develop strong analytical techniques that assist with event planning and program management. The degree also encourages competent communication abilities.

Most students can achieve their MA in Leisure Studies in one to two years, though this depends on whether they are attending full- or part-time. The cost to attend can vary. Reasons for variation depend on whether the school is public or private. Students should compare schools to find the most appropriate.

Graduates can pursue a number of careers. Those who enjoy being outdoors could consider becoming a park ranger or park recreation manager. They can also apply their skills as an amusement park planner or manager. Some careers can be both demanding and rewarding, such as an activities director at a resort or hotel. Students who want to see the world can apply for positions as activity directors or managers aboard cruise ships. Becoming a coach or fitness club manager is an entirely different route for graduates.
