Concentration: Adventure Sports

The Adventure Sports Concentration is a collaborative program with Garrett College in Western Maryland. There are few programs like it in the country. Students may complete the program by entering the program at Frostburg and taking courses to complete the concentration at Garrett or enter Garrett directly and transfer to Frostburg after completing their program. Many students consider the Adventure Sports program for the following reasons:

  • The program has received national attention for its innovative program. One important component of its innovative program is its collaboration with Frostburg and the ability of Recreation and Parks Management majors to incorporate adventure sports as an integral part of its program. More than twenty Frostburg students are completing the Garrett Program.
  • The program at Garrett has three full-time faculty. In addition, the program brings back into the classroom practitioners who are specialists in their outdoor discipline.
  • Frostburg students can earn a concentration in Adventure Sports from Frostburg State University. Many students transfer or "reverse articulate" their Frostburg general education classes to Garrett and earn an AAS degree from Garrett in Adventuresports. Ask us about this program.
  • Adventure Sports is a Common Market Program for many states. For example, students from Virginia can enroll in the Adventure Sports program at Frostburg and receive in-county tuition for their courses at Garrett. This offers considerable savings for out-of-state students. Again, ask about this program.
  • The program emphasizes experiential learning and practical experiences.
  • Garrett is committed to making the Adventure Sports Program a quality program. It is one of their President's "signature programs."
