Prospective Graduate Student Visitation Day October 26th – Details Below
Our graduate programs are designed to prepare park, recreation, tourism, and sport professionals for leadership and academic positions in their respective disciplines.
Each year PRTM faculty compete for and are awarded external research grants and contracts totaling more than $1,000,000 in research dollars making it possible for our faculty to support graduate students and conduct research in four broad areas – health and well-being, human dimensions of built and natural environments, equitable and sustainable tourism and geospatial methods and models.
PRTM conducts research in partnership with a variety of federal agencies including National Park Service, Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, the U.S. Forest Service, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Faculty research is also supported by grants from private foundations such as the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Golden Leaf Foundation. North Carolina State Parks, the North Carolina Division of Travel & Tourism, many North Carolina cities, towns and counties as well as non-profit organizations and private sector companies also provide support for PRTM’s research. Finally, PRTM graduate faculty work collaboratively with other faculty in a number of disciplines at NC State including forestry and environmental resources, public administration, and landscape architecture and with colleagues from a variety of universities in the U.S.
