The University of Regina offers a direct entry Bachelor of Sport and Recreation Studies (BSRS) consisting of 120 credit hours of study (or 7 full-time semesters of 5 classes each plus one semester of Fieldwork) in one of the following majors:

Sport and Recreation Management (SRM): In Sport and Recreation Management you will develop a theoretical and practical understanding of the importance of recreational and leisure pursuits to a healthy, active and balanced lifestyle. You will also learn about the administration of sport at the local, provincial and national level. If the combination of business and sport sounds appealing, then the Sport and Recreation Management major is for you.

Therapeutic Recreation (THRC): Therapeutic Recreation uses a thorough understanding of recreation and leisure theory to elicit changes in functioning.  Completion of this major will guarantee eligibility to write the exams through NCTRC (National Council for Therapeutic Recreation Certification) to become a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist (CTRS).
