|Field of Study:
||Parks, Recreation and Leisure Studies
||The Master of Arts Leisure Studies program is a thesis-based program with two main areas of research concentration: Therapeutic Recreation and Recreation Administration. The curriculum focuses on leisure across the life course, theoretical concepts related to leisure, and the delivery of leisure services in diverse contexts. Since leisure is a significant component in the promotion of social, physical, psychological, and spiritual health, students in this program will graduate ready to apply their skills in a variety of settings.
Situated within the School of Health and Human Performance, the MA Leisure Studies program is perfectly positioned to provide students with interprofessional collaboration opportunities that emphasize the importance of leisure and its impact on health.

English is the language of study at Dalhousie; therefore all applicants whose first language is not English must demonstrate their capacity to pursue a graduate-level program in English before admission. Dalhousie accepts a number of different English proficiency test scores: Internet-based TOEFL- 92; Written TOEFL - 580; MELAB - 85; IELTS - 7; CanTest - 4.5 (with no band score lower than 4.0); or CAEL 70 with no band score lower than 60. Alternatively, a prospective student may enroll in the ESL program with the Dalhousie College of Continuing Education and obtain a grade of at least A- on the final stage of that training. The language competency test may be waived if the applicant has completed a degree at a recognized university where the language of instruction is English. The claims must be verified by the Faculty of Graduate Studies. Test scores are valid for two years from the date the test was written.
