Students considering the Sports and Recreation Management (SRAX) program at Lambton College will now be on the fast-track to a career, finishing the six semester program now in just two years.
While both the admission requirements and the credential remain unchanged, the remainder of the program has seen an infusion of practical solutions to the ever growing demands of prospective students. The new fast-track delivery will see two 14-week terms in the fall and winter plus two seven-week terms in the spring. Time spent on practical and hands-on learning will increase. Further, an internship option is now a possibility for all students including those interested in taking the University of Windsor degree completion options.
Because of these changes, a student beginning September 2012 in the SRAX program would potentially be able to complete both a Sports and Recreation Management Ontario College Advanced Diploma from Lambton College PLUS a Honours Bachelor of Human Kinetics, Sports Management Degree from University of Windsor, all within four years. This option allows for significant cost savings when comparing college to university tuition, not to mention the opportunity to study at home for those first two years after high school. All the while, students can take advantage of all the small college lifestyle offers before venturing out to university where students can complete their very diverse education.
“Overall, not only will SRAX provide an opportunity to study for a shorter time while achieving the same credential, it will also provide many opportunities to gain exposure to professionals who are in positions to hire students, all while keeping those doors to university wide open,” said Rob Kardas, Dean, School of Business, Hospitality and Creative Design.
Further enhancements to the program include a varied curriculum from both a business perspective as well as health and fitness. Students will engage in real-world projects working with various partners at the community, provincial, national, and international levels – both through their course work along with their completely customizable practical experience (co-op, field work, or internship).
